Urban highways can affect the attractiveness of walking and cycling in a community, and freeway interchanges in particular can be a significant barrier. The City of Ottawa is taking the planned replacement of four bridges across Highway 417 as an opportunity to enhance active mode safety, comfort and connectivity. This webinar will highlight key approaches to redesigning these freeway interchanges and improving their service to all road users.
