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.
The following important rehabilitation projects are planned to begin this summer and continue until 2019.
The rehabilitation of the asphalt surface of the Portage Bridge and widening of the cycle track will improve safety and user comfort, as well as maintain the bridge service life until the need for major reconstruction in 10 to 25 years.
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.
