Blackfriars Bridge is back.
After nine months of off-site repairs and restoration, construction crews lowered one of the oldest and rarest bridges in Canada back to its original site over the Thames River. This structure contributes to the character of our community.
Preserving London’s heritage matters and seeing the structure returned, looking like it did in 1875, really brings our City’s history to life.
The bridge will remain closed until November 2018, while crews install the final bridge components and complete road work. For more information and pictures of the install click here.
Looking ahead I will be attending the Association of Municipalities Ontario’s annual conference next week in Ottawa.
AMO offers us an opportunity to engage with the new Provincial Government and outline London’s priorities, as we work to build the city we want for our children and grandchildren.
We have so many city building projects on the go, including London’s Bus Rapid Transit, that we are looking forward to discussing with our new partners at Queens Park.
