Background Information

The Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge will span 143 metres across the Rideau River and connect residents of Riverside South and Barrhaven. This link will alleviate critical pressure on the existing bridges at Hunt Club Road and Bridge Street (Manotick). Funded equally by all three levels of government, the bridge is expected to be in service by 2012.

In addition to the bridge, Strandherd Drive is being extended to provide the western link to the bridge, while Earl Armstrong Road is being extended and widened to facilitate access to the bridge from the east side.
