The first support beam for the new Rideau Canal Crossing at Clegg St. and Fifth Ave. has been put in place.

For many people in the area it is a positive sign that the new pedestrian and cycling bridge is one step closer to completion.

But for the homeowners on Echo Dr. who will face the bridge – it has ruined their views and sense of privacy.

“Essentially people get to walk along here and look into our houses,” said Margaret Vant Erve.
