Have you wondered about the purpose of these piers as you travel Ottawa’s Queensway? These piers will soon support the Train/Coventry Pedestrian Bridge linking the Overbrook residential community, municipal facilities at the Ottawa ballpark and the future LRT station at the Via Rail Station. The bridge will also act as a Eastern gateway to the National Capital. Construction of the half-kilometer-long project was initiated in the fall of 2012 with the forming of substantial concrete piers in the center median of the Queensway and at the north end of the bridge’s future span. The span of the bridge will be 153 m (500 feet).
