Chaudière Bridge to reopen Monday to pedestrians, cyclists
Public transit will also be able to use the interprovincial crossing Wednesday
Starting Monday, pedestrians and cyclists will once again be able to cross between Ottawa and Gatineau using the Chaudière Bridge.
The bridge was closed to all forms of traffic April 28 due to concerns about high water levels on the Ottawa River.
Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) said Sunday that the interprovincial crossing would reopen at 7 a.m. on May 27 for people travelling on foot and by bicycle.
The bridge will also be open to public transit as of 6 a.m. Wednesday, PSPC said.
Motorists will have to use one of the other Ottawa River crossings for the time being, however.
Earlier this month, PSPC announced the Chaudière Bridge would be closed to vehicles until August, since it was already scheduled to undergo summer construction work before the floods hit.
