The Heron Road Bridge has reopened, ahead of schedule and on budget. Work began on the Heron Road Bridge in February 2011, with completion of the North Bridge in December 2011 and an anticipated completion date for the South Bridge of mid-November 2012. Construction work continues on Heron Road in both directions just east of the bridge.

The Heron Road Bridge Rehabilitation project is a $15 million construction project to rehabilitate the bearings, expansion joints and pavement of the bridge, and also includes waterproofing, barrier replacement, sidewalk widening, rebuilding of the approaches and utlitity relocation.

The Heron Road Bridge is partially funded through Ottawa on the Move. Ottawa on the Move will see $340 million of capital projects completed from 2012 to 2015 and is about renewing our infrastructure and keeping our community and economy moving forward through strategic investments in a number of transportation, water, and sewer projects to build a better city and create jobs.
