Vimy Memorial Bridge name approved at Ottawa committee
Bridge connecting Riverside South and Barrhaven opened this summer
Ottawa's transportation committee has approved changing the name of the recently-opened Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge to the Vimy Memorial Bridge.
The name must still be approved by city council.
The $48 million south Ottawa bridge opened in July after a number of delays, including when the company building the bridge went into receivership.
The bridge connects Strandherd Drive to Earl Armstrong Road, linking the communities of Barrhaven and Riverside South.
