Thank you for your interest in the progress of the Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge.



The Strandherd-Armstrong Bridge has been my top local priority and our community’s most important project. The role of the federal government in this initiative has been to secure one-third of the total funding of the project and ensure that it met all environmental requirements. I am happy to say that these steps were accomplished over a year ago.


The City of Ottawa is responsible for hiring contractors and managing the day-to-day aspects of the project. For details on the most recent developments on the project status, I suggest that you contact Councillor Steve Desroches by phone at 613.580.2751 or by email at
