This message is sent on behalf of Marie Lemay, Chief Executive Officer of the National Capital Commission:
I am pleased to inform you that we have just received confirmation from the City of Ottawa that they will allow the public to cross the Transitway at Preston. The National Capital Commission will be re-opening the gate as of this weekend to all cyclists and pedestrians. We will have our contractor, Lafleur de la Capitale clean the site and fill any visible holes. As to whether or not this will become a more permanent path, the LeBreton Flats site, as you know continues to be in transition. There are construction projects to come in the future. We will try and maintain the informal link as long as we can and will work with the community to inform you of necessary closures.
