Canada’s Capital Region—Hog’s Back Swing Bridge will be closed to all traffic—pedestrians, cyclists and motor vehicles—for end-of-season regular maintenance from Tuesday, November 9 at 9 am to Friday, November 12 at 3 pm, weather permitting.

During the closure, travellers will not be able to use Hog’s Back Road to cross the canal. A detour will be in place for motor vehicles. Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to use the lock gate crossing during the closure. This crossing is not universally accessible; therefore, the strollers and bicycles will need to be lifted for three steps.

The National Capital Commission urges users to exercise caution, respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage and flag persons at the site.
