The Hog's Back Swing Bridge is once again closing to traffic, temporarily.

From May 10 to 14, the bridge will be closed for final testing and preventative work related to the start of Rideau Canal navigation season.

After being closed for 14 months, the swing bridge re-opened to traffic early last October, but then shut down again when work was necessary on the stationary bridge. The bridge then fully reopened, between Colonel By Drive and Riverside Drive in January of this year. 

Hog's Back Road will be closed between Colonel By Drive and Prince of Wales Drive, with local access, starting Monday, May 10.
