> Good morning All,
> It is with great pleasure that I inform you that the much anticipated Rideau Canal Pedestrian Bridge at Somerset Street will be open to the public as of mid-morning on Thursday, 21 Sep 06. It is noted that the stairs on both sides of the Canal and the west lower pathway will remain closed for a few days longer so that they can be made safe for public use. In addition, landscaping work will continue for the next 2 to 3 weeks.
