The Chief William Commanda Bridge is now open for residents and visitors to enjoy!
As part of a larger rehabilitation project connecting Ottawa’s Trillium Pathway to the National Capital Commission’s Voyageurs’ pathway in Gatineau, this multi-use pathway is now open to cycling commuters, recreational users and visitors.
Although there is still ongoing work on the pier and the substructure, our dedicated team of engineers has given their approval to open the multi-use pathway. While using the bridge, please be mindful of the construction areas, and kindly follow all signs to ensure your safety.
As we progress with the complete rehabilitation project, we anticipate some temporary disruptions to bridge access over the next year. The City of Ottawa will communicate these disruptions in advance to ensure the impact to users is known ahead of time.
The restoration of the Chief William Commanda Bridge marks a significant milestone as a major interprovincial link, facilitating active transportation across our region.
Before setting out on your journey, make sure you have updated information about the pathway and visit the City’s interactive traffic map to confirm the pathway is open for use.
Additionally, keep an eye out for the official bridge opening ceremony, scheduled to take place in the fall.
