The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke would like to advise the community of an upcoming study conducted by the St. Lawrence Seaway Management Corporation for the Tekakwitha Island Bridge. The studies will be carried out by the engineering firm SNC-Lavalin, from Monday, June 20th to Wednesday, June 22nd between 7am and 6pm.

The work involves drilling into the rock at the four (4) corners of the existing bridge. The data gathered will be used to assist in the planning, design, and feasibility for the construction of a pedestrian and cycling bridge to the Island.

Due to the nature of the work, one (1) lane will be closed over the bridge. Proper signage will be installed, and flagmen will be on site to ensure safety and the flow of traffic.
