It has been a long time coming, but the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge is now open! With the ribbon-cutting ceremony taking place at on Saturday, July 13th, 2014, the communities of Barrhaven and Riverside South are now connected over the Rideau River!
The new bridge is another option for people to cross the Rideau River and will improve traffic conditions on other bridges. It will provide improved transit service, shorter commutes, reduced emergency response times and improve access to both shopping and recreation. The bridge boasts four lanes of regular traffic, two lanes for public transit, plus on-road bike lanes and sidewalks on both sides.
If you haven't had a chance to cross the bridge yet...find time to try it out and experience all the conveniences available to both communities!
