Bank Street Bridge Reconfiguration

Bank Street Bridge Reconfiguration

Comments are requested by April 22, 2021 on the proposed changes for the Bank Street Canal Bridge.

What: The City is designing improved active transportation (i.e., cycling and pedestrian) facilities on the Bank Street bridge over the Rideau Canal. In September 2020, City Council members endorsed a concept design for the bridge crossing that included a reduction of vehicle lanes over the bridge from the existing four lanes to three lanes in order to accommodate active transportation facilities.

Birdhouses Galore

“It started as a bit of a lark – birdhouses everywhere in our basement and a throw away comment of ‘hey, maybe people would want them for a donation to the Firehall?’ explained Shelley Kennedy.

“And now we have requests for 58 birdhouses! My husband Sean is astonished at the attention this has received.” The birdhouses are made from used skids or pallets collected from local businesses, a recycling hobby that Sean started to while away pandemic hours. The skids are not “treated” and are safe for our local birds. Aside from cross-country skiing, work and family the recycled birdhouses are filling in some of Sean’s creative play when “staying at home” is the best way to beat COVID-19.
