Laurier Bridge Reconstruction
The Laurier Bridge over the Rideau Canal in Ottawa was originally constructed in 1900. One hundred years later, the bridge was redesigned and reconstructed to better accommodate pedestrians, cyclists, and vehicles.
The DTAH design team used photo-imaging technology to find the best way to incorporate the heritage arch assembly, which could be retained. Nighttime illumination was used in the design to accentuate and highlight this unique steel frame. The project also included streetscape and landscape design for the adjoining parks and public spaces.
