For many years, there has been discussion about joining the east and west ends of the city with a third route – a bridge over the Cataraqui River.
The two existing routes from east-to-west are Highway 401 and the Lasalle Causeway – neither is owned by the City.
In 2013, an environmental assessment was finished to determine:
- The need for a third crossing
- The impacts a third crossing could have on the environment, neighbourhoods, etc.
- The best location for the bridge
