This is typical of Ottawa. Ottawa is so lacking in meaningful things to do or see, they consider a crappy little bridge to be some sort of tourist attraction. Pathetic.

It a wonderful example of bridge engendering and illustrates steel truss cantilever construction. It is walkable and can take you to a different Provence! Absolutely a must-walk!

You can see this from Ottawa, as well as from the river, which we did on the amphibious bus/boat tour. Impressive from under it on the river!

This was a very interesting bridge! It just looked so nastalgic. We enjoyed touring the area here also.

This bridge, over 100 years old, has a pedestrian and bicycle area adjacent to, but separate from, the vehicular traffic. It's a nice walk between cities and offers some great views of both cities.
