During the winter pause in navigation, The St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation will undertake infrastructure renewal work as part of our annual investment program. In
2022 we invested 32 million dollars in maintaining the Welland Canal. These ongoing investments ensure the safety and reliability of our infrastructure while providing economic benefits to communities in Niagara.

This work will necessitate the extended closure of the Homer Bridge in St.
Catharines/Niagara-on-the-Lake and the Clarence St. Bridge in Port Colborne.
