The multi-use bridge provides an important active transportation connection and reduces automobile commuting volume
Overall project objective was to define a signature bridge over the heritage setting of the Rideau Canal that provides a functional, multi-use connection in midtown Ottawa.
- MMM developed a plan for improving pedestrian and cycling linkages over the Rideau Canal World Heritage site between urban neighbourhoods in the City of Ottawa
- The plan was designed to foster healthy communities by promoting active transportation through enhanced pedestrian and cycling connectivity, and promote environmental health through decreased automobile use
- Using both traditional and online media tools, MMM provided communications and public consultation services that were integral to the success of this project
- environmental assessment
- functional design
- public consultation
