Clegg-Fifth Footbridge Update from Councillor Chernushenko’s Office

Ian Grabina of Councillor Chernushenko’s office has informed OOECA of recent progress on the canal footbridge, including the highlights that the construction could begin as early as Fall 2017 and some of the changes suggested by the association and others after the February information session either have or may be reflected in the revised design. Specifically:

Design plan for multi-use pathway through Brantwood Park and along Rideau River

The City of Ottawa is undertaking a design plan for a new multi-use pathway along the western shoreline of the Rideau River from Onslow through Brantwood Park to the existing pathway that ends at the University of Ottawa’s Lees Campus.

Full details of the proposal and a section by section view of how this pathway will make its way through the Old Ottawa East community can be found on the City of Ottawa's website.

Celebrating Rideau Canal Access Points for Paddlers

OECA president Phyllis Odenbach-Sutton joined MP and Environment Minister Catherine McKenna on the Rideau Canal to celebrate two new paddle access points. One will be located at Clegg Avenue (Colonel By Drive), the other at Patterson Creek (Queen Elizabeth Drive). The OECA has long supported better access to the Rideau Canal for all paddlers.
