About the project

Study area of The Ward to Downtown bridges

Study area of The Ward to Downtown bridges

As recommended in the Downtown Secondary Plan, the City is proposing to build two pedestrian/cyclist bridges within the study area. The bridges are being considered to address the anticipated increase in pedestrian and cyclist traffic generated from the adjacent condominium development on Arthur Street South and other developments further east within St. Patrick’s Ward. An open house was held on September 21, 2016 to obtain the public’s input at the start of the study process.
