NCC endorses canal footbridge design concept

At its summer meeting, the National Capital Commission (NCC) board unanimously endorsed the City of Ottawa’s design concept for the proposed Fifth-Clegg canal footbridge. Board members were complimentary on both the design and the process, and part of the presentation included new sketches, one of which showed what the bridge would look like from the skateway (seating around the base of the piers and that seating would be underwater when the canal is open).

The design concept presented to the NCC board is essentially the same as what was posted on the City of Ottawa website in April when people were given the opportunity to comment. The final public open house for the proposed bridge is now expected to be at the end of September.
