Mayor Jim Watson has pledged to sod the Alexandra Bridge for Canada 150 but isn’t it a bit early to be starting.
This is a press release from the federal government by way of the City of Ottawa:
Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) wishes to advise motorists that the Alexandra Bridge will be closed February 4th, 2017 and February 5th, 2017 from 7 am to 1 pm, for preparatory work for Canada 150 events.
No vehicular traffic will be permitted on the bridge. The boardwalk will remain open, but pedestrians and cyclists should expect a width reduction for short periods of time during this work. Cyclists will be asked to walk their bike when travelling through the reduced portion.
Pedestrians and cyclists will have to exercise caution while using the boardwalk.
The schedule may change because of weather conditions.
PSPC encourages users to exercise caution when travelling in the construction zone and thanks them for their patience.
