note that there is significant road work underway in Stratford this summer. We
advise you to allow additional time to get to the Festival for your visit.
Blue Water Bridge Construction
The U.S.-bound span (First Blue Water Bridge) will be closed to traffic for rehabilitation work beginning July 5, 2023. The work is expected to be finished by October 5, 2023. To minimize impact and disruption, the Canada-bound span (Second Blue Water Bridge) will become bi-directional and remain operational during construction.
While traffic is expected to be maintained during this construction, we advise you to allow additional time to get to Stratford for your visit. For more information, please visit the
Blue Water Bridge Rehabilitation Project website.
