Big project coming to the Rideau Canal.
It was announced today that a brand new $21 million dollar pedestrian and cycling foot- bridge will be built over the Rideau Canal.
It will connect Fifth Street in the Glebe with Clegg Street.
It will cross the canal just north of the Canal Ritz restaurant.
Of the $21 million it will cost, half will be paid by the Federal Government, the rest will be split between the Provincial and the City of Ottawa.
Building starts late next year and should by ready by 2019.
Are you cool with another foot-bridge or should the money go somewhere else?
