Gatineau LRT plan could spur reopening of Prince of Wales Bridge

By CBC News Ottawa, June 21, 2018

Gatineau's LRT plan could be the first step toward rail traffic returning to the Prince of Wales Bridge.

The city unveiled its plan on Wednesday, a $2.1 billion proposal that would bring commuters across the Ottawa River at both the Prince of Wales and Alexandra bridges.

The plan is just a proposal at this stage, with the city set to embark on two years of studies and consultation about what it would take to make the project a reality, but the hope is it could be in service by 2028.
