The National Capital Commission (NCC) is currently renewing the Capital Pathway Strategic Plan. And you can provide feedback on the plan.
Advance work on the construction of the multi-use path underpass at Bank Street and Riverside Drive has been postponed due to Barn Swallows nesting under Billings Bridge. Barn Swallows are protected under the Species at Risk Act.
Let us know what you think:
The National Capital Commission (NCC) and the City of Ottawa will be implementing an improved crossing at the intersection of Bank Street and Riverside Drive. We are proposing the creation of an underpass on the multi-use pathway, which will increase user safety by allowing cyclists and pedestrians to cross Bank Street under the bridge.
The City of Ottawa will be reconstructing the multi-use pathway along the Rideau River between Bank Street & Belmont Avenue.
Sponsored by the Gloucester Historical Society, Association of Friends of the Billings Estate Museum, Gloucester Lions Club and Billings Bridge Shopping Centre, the plaque commemorates the 200th anniversary of the arrival in 1812 of pioneer settler Braddish Billings to the Ottawa area.
The official unveiling of the plaque to honour Braddish Billings took place Wednesday, August 21, 2013.
Old Ottawa South has had many bridges spanning the neighbourhood boundaries over the years.
