Project Description

Project Description

The Strandherd Armstrong Bridge is a vital link across the Rideau River. The bridge provides the missing link between the southwest and southeast transit corridors in the city of Ottawa and is a necessary piece of infrastructure to reduce the increasing pressure on existing bridges. Innovative construction and erection designs coupled with the efficient use of steel was essential for this project as access below the bridge was restricted during construction.
