Workers were continuing to erect scaffolding under the QEW Skyway bridge at the Welland Canal in St. Catharines today, Aug.11, 2008. They were lined up standing above each other for hours, passing sections of tubing up to the top in order to construct the scaffold around the bridge piers. The bridge's concrete columns are to be repaired and resurfaced.
