/R E P E A T -- Media Advisory - Clyde Avenue Bridge To Get Quick Fix/



    Media Invited To Open House And Photo Opportunity

    OTTAWA, July 4 /CNW/ - Technology that can lift bridges weighing as much
as a fully loaded Boeing 747 will be used in August to replace the Clyde
Avenue Bridge on Highway 417/Ottawa Queensway in 17 hours. The old bridge will
be lifted away and replaced with a pre-constructed bridge built off-site in a
nearby location. Learn more about the Clyde Avenue Bridge Rapid Replacement
