Pedestrian crossing bridging the gap between Glebe and Old Ottawa East

Bakers and avid fundraisers in the Glebe, Old Ottawa East and Old Ottawa South can breathe easy – there is no longer a need to privately fund a pedestrian bridge connecting the communities.

The city’s share of the funds is $155.9 million for 57 projects.
