Coming soon to the Portage corridor

Improvements to the look, as well as the ease of access to the Portage corridor will be in place before the end of 2018.

In April 2018, our Board of Directors approved two major projects that will enhance the Portage corridor, one of the Capital core’s most defining cultural landscape elements. Stretching across the Ottawa River along the Portage Bridge, the corridor includes Richmond Landing, with the Royal Canadian Navy Monument, the Bronson Pulp Mill ruins, Victoria Island and the shorelines on both sides of the river.

These important rehabilitation projects are expected to start this spring: 

Portage Bridge Resurfacing and Widening of Cycling Track

The rehabilitation of the asphalt surface of the Portage Bridge and the enhancement of its cycle track will improve safety and user comfort, and maintain the bridge service life until the need for major reconstruction in 10 to 25 years.

Bronson Pulp Mill Ruins and Richmond Landing Shoreline

The Bronson Pulp Mill ruins and Richmond Landing shoreline projects will give the public a new way to discover and experience the Ottawa River shoreline and islands.
