Those looking to access Prince Edward County via the Bay of Quinte Skyway Bridge this Mother’s Day weekend should plan an alternate route.

A full closure of the bridge will take place between Saturday, May 11 and Monday, May 13, beginning at 6 a.m. on Saturday and ending at 6 a.m.

A media release says the closure is intended for the placement of concrete in the closure strip to connect the new decks together prior to final paving.

“Due to the high early strength concrete being used for this concrete placement, excessive vibrations need to be reduced until the concrete has reached the required strength for traffic to cross the bridge, which can take up to 48 hours,” the release explains.

This closure is in addition to the full mainline night closure scheduled for Thursday, April 25 to Friday, April 26 and nightly closures scheduled Monday, April 29 to Friday, May 3.

No traffic will be permitted to pass over the bridge during the above closures. Please refer to the Glenora Ferry website for more information about using this service as an alternative route. If you have any questions or concerns, please visit the project website.
