Vessel Traffic in Beauharnois Canal

Thursday, December 18, 2008

On December 16, 2008, The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation (SLSMC) announced that the Saint-Louis de Gonzague Bridge has been successfully raised to permit the resumption of vessels transits below its lift span.  The bridge will continue to be closed to automobile traffic for the next few days as final repairs are completed.

A series of cables that were damaged on Friday, December 12, due to heavy ice and snow precipitation have been replaced permitting the span to be raised.  Until final repairs are completed, the lift span will remain in the raised position.  Automobile traffic should continue to take alternate routes, which include the Larocque Bridge in Valleyfield and the Melocheville Tunnel.

The SLSMC will make every effort to restore the bridge to full operation as soon as possible, and wishes to convey its appreciation to all local residents for their understanding.
