Beckwith Stone Arch Bridge Construction
The final stages of the Beckwith Street Stone Arch Bridge are set to recommence on Monday, May 8th. Ottawa Greenbelt Construction (formerly Colautti Construction) will be moving forward with the completion of the west bridge deck, new pedestrian stairway and the storm drainage outlets supporting future downtown renewal. This major infrastructure project is fully funded from grants subsidies from the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund ($2,000,000) and the Federal Gas Tax Fund ($289,600).
Motorists are advised that lane reductions and detours will be in place during construction and therefore traffic delays should be expected. In all cases, the Town asks that drivers obey construction signs and traffic control in work zones in order to ensure the safety of local workers. Residents and businesses located in each of these work zones will be contacted individually with further project information.
