A major transportation infrastructure project will be completed before Canada Day, unfortunately it won’t be the LRT.

The Flora Footbridge, a $21-million project, is tentatively expected to open Friday at 5 p.m. according to Coun. Shawn Menard’s Twitter account.

“It connects our communities,” Menard said in a Twitter video. “It has been a long, long time coming.”

The 123-metre-long bridge will connect the Glebe and Old Ottawa East neighbourhoods, between Fifth Avenue and Clegg Street.
