Pedestrians and cyclists who use the Harmer Avenue bridge to cross Highway 417 between the Wellington West and Civic Hospital neighbourhoods will be re-routed for two years during work to replace it.

People attending a Tuesday night public meeting about the upcoming construction described their children using the bridge to get to school, meet with friends, walk to bus stops and connect to cycling routes north and south of the highway.
