Temporary pathway closures at Hurdman bridge through mid-August

Short duration flagging and intermittent closures will continue to occur on the Rideau River multi-use pathways (near Highway 417) as required through July and August 2015 to complete works on the Hurdman Bridge structure. Furthermore, complete closures of the east and west pathways will occur for approximately 3 weeks, per side, as crews begin to restore and realign the pathways. The west pathway was closed starting July 15, 2015 and the eastern pathway is scheduled to close as early as August 6, 2015. Signage will be on site. The western pathway will be detoured via the Lees Avenue overpass and the eastern pathway will be detoured via Vanier Parkway and the new Coventry Pedestrian and Cycling Bridge over Highway 417.

Please note that these dates are dependent on weather and work progress; we will continue to provide updates as they become available.
