December 11, 2015  -  Tomlinson Completes Rideau River Pedestrian Bridge - Adàwe Crossing - Ahead of Schedule
At an official ceremony held on Friday, December 4, 2015 to open the Adàwe Crossing, Mayor Jim Watson congratulated Tomlinson for their contribution in the construction of the new pedestrian bridge. Tomlinson was instrumental in the planning and construction of the new landmark that links Donald Street and Somerset Street East and provides pedestrians and cyclists easy access to the communities, amenities and employment located on either side of the Rideau River. Working with the City and the Rideau Tennis Club as well as engineering partner, Stantec, Tomlinson ensured Adàwe Crossing met the City’s needs and was completed ahead of schedule. “Today’s bridge opening, which is ahead of schedule and on budget, is a testament to the hard work of all those involved in the project, including the City of Ottawa, the Stantec team and of course, Tomlinson.
