The Hog's Back swing bridge is closed until further notice due to an operational matter.

River Ward City Councillor Riley Brockington made the announcement via Twitter on Friday, July 23.

The bridge is closed to all modes of traffic. Pedestrians and cyclists are asked to use the lock bridges to the immediate north.

Brockington is working to find out what the problem is with the bridge and to get a timeline from the National Capital Commission as to when the bridge will be expected to reopen.

The swing bridge has been closed for extended periods since the summer of 2019 for construction and other issues. It's most recent closure came in May of this year for testing and preventative work related to the start of Rideau Canal navigation season.
