Niagara Parks reopens Black Creek Bridge after replacement project

Niagara Parks announced the reopening of the Black Creek Bridge to traffic on Friday, April 26, following a $3 million replacement project. The historic bridge, originally constructed in 1911 and later rehabilitated in 1994, underwent replacement due to age and deterioration.

The project was carried out by contractor Rankin Construction.

The new bridge design was informed by community feedback gathered during public consultations. The aim was to maintain the bridge’s heritage value while improving navigable height for boats, enhancing safety, and minimizing impacts to scenic viewpoints.

While traffic resumed on April 26, final site remediation work by Rankin Construction, including the installation of permanent railings and restoration of surrounding greenspaces, will continue without affecting public access.
