Strandherd – Armstrong Bridge


Project Description

The Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge, located south of Ottawa, has a total length of 143 metres. The arches rise to 21 metres above the roadway and have a 125-metre opening. Steel made this exceptional structure possible. Without the structure’s relative lightness, launching would not have been possible, resulting in obvious environmental consequences. Without the strength of the material and its flexible use, such a transparent and aerial work could not have been envisioned. The environmental objectives, respect for this heritage site, and of course traffic improvement, were achieved and undoubtedly even exceeded.
