Forks Road Bridge

The Forks Road Bridge was closed to vehicular traffic on Friday, November 2, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. Although pedestrians may continue to access the bridge, a full closure to all vehicles was necessary because of the deterioration of the structure and not being able to monitor which vehicles access the bridge.

Welland City Council and city staff understand the significance of this closure and the impact it has on the community; therefore, staff presented a detailed report to Council on December 11, 2018 at the General Meeting. The report offers suggestions on potential options for the future of Forks Road Bridge. Along with the community, Welland City Council will explore these options along with other options brought forward by the community at large.
