Two federally funded pedestrian crossovers opened Thursday morning along the Queen Elizabeth Driveway. The new crossings are located on the west side of the Bank Street Bridge, near Commissioners Park. The funds to install them come from an agreement the City of Ottawa has with Canada's Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.

The crossovers are marked by street signs and drivers must yield right of way to pedestrians when the lights atop the sign flash.
