The federal government will help pay for a new footbridge over the Rideau Canal connecting Fifth Avenue and Clegg Street, one of dozens of local projects to benefit from a $1.49-billion transit infrastructure fund detailed Tuesday.

That was just one of 57 projects in Ottawa that will share the city's $156-million portion of this first round of federal infrastructure money, which is focused on transit-related projects. The city is expected to match the federal contribution to each project.
