McRae disappointed by bridge delays Eddie Rwema

forming them that city staff and the contractor, Louis W. Bray Construction Ltd., agreed that the “most expedient solution” would be to tear down the existing main tower, which is a curved, A-frame support with a circle cut out to echo the city’s logo. McRae said the bridge delays have denied residents a piece of infrastructure that they should be using now. “It represents lack of a safe passage into a very busy tran-

Association president John Sankey said the association has been left guessing about the progress of the project since the city first announced the demolition. However, Coun.

Sankey said his community was upset by the delay of the project, but at the same time re-

lieved because the concrete was far too badly damaged. “We are very relieved that the company decided that they wouldn’t fight that decision but instead build it properly,” he said. When finished, the approximately $5 million bridge will be a state-of-the-art piece of architecture, designed in part to provide a ‘wow factor’ for visitors entering the city from the Ottawa International Airport.


EMC news – River Ward Coun. Maria McRae wants the Airport Parkway pedestrian bridge built as quickly as possible to provide residents with a safe passage to cross in the South Keys area. Construction crews began demolishing the incomplete pedestrian bridge after the work crew began experiencing problems with the concrete. Last month McRae sent an email to city councillors in-
