The Champlain Bridge has reached the end of its service life. It will be replaced with a new bridge and taken down starting in 2020 according to a sustainable development approach. 

This major project will last three years and has many components: environmental protection, material reuse, and research and development. Once new space around the former bridge becomes available, the shoreline and the Estacade (which spans the river) will be redeveloped for recreation and commemorative purposes. Another component called Heritage Champlain, will get the community’s creativity involved in this project.

On November 28th, come to 4TH SPACE to engage in a participatory design exercise and share ideas about recycling the Champlain Bridge.​
