I write this blog in Canadian English and don't use a spell checker. Typos happen.

Rideau Canal Footbridge
I was driving past the intersection of Somerset Street West and Queen Elizabeth Drive here in Ottawa and noticed some piles driven into the west side of the Rideau Canal.
I was curious so I got out of my car and saw more piles being driven in on the other side of the canal. It looks like the multi-million dollar footbridge from Centretown to the University of Ottawa is finally being built.
There's not a lot of room on the west side so the bridge cuts off the existing bike path there. It looks like it will go completely over the bike path on the east side of the canal.
It will be interesting to see how this affects the Centretown neighborhood east of Elgin Street. Right now it's a good walk (especially in the winter before or after the canal is frozen) to the university from Centretown. This bridge makes Centretown easily accessible from the school -- it could very well be the next Sandy Hill as far as students are concerned.Posted at July 12, 2005 at 08:48 AM EST
