CORNWALL, Ontario - Local residents will get one more chance to cross the old North Channel Bridge next week.

Seaway International Bridge

The Seaway International Bridge Corporation, Ltd. (SIBC), in collaboration with the Federal Bridge Corporation Limited (FBCL), are hosting a 'bridge open house' Tuesday, July 8, from 2 to 8 p.m.

The pedestrian-only event is free, wheelchair accessible and open to the public.

The rain date is set for Wednesday, July 9, from 2 to 8 p.m.

Community members are invited to walk the bridge and view the historical photos that will be set up on the bridge for the occasion, according to an FBCL media statement released today.

The special community event is also set to feature a brief commentary on the history of the old bridge, its replacement with the new North Channel Bridge and the planned demolition.

    I think this was a great thing, however, would be great if they could do one more day, for those who had to work! I would have loved to have gone!

    It may be a walk to remember for some, but there has been much tragedy for me associated with the bridge. I for one say no thank you
