The Forks Road Bridge was closed to vehicular traffic on Friday, November 2, 2018, at 9:00 a.m. A full closure 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. For a better understanding on how the Forks Road Bridge project has evolved, please review the Timeline, located to the right.

Currently, Welland City Council is reviewing options on how to move this project forward and re-build a bridge that will connect Niagara to people, places, and things.
