Feds seek input on new Champlain bridge name
INFRASTRUCTURE CANADA — Work continues on the Champlain Bridge in Montreal towards an expected December completion. In March, teams for the cable-stayed portion installed the first main span segment over the St. Lawrence River.

MONTREAL — Infrastructure Canada recently announced it has embarked on a process to consult with experts and stakeholders on finding a distinct name for the new Champlain bridge.

The new name being considered, the Samuel de Champlain Bridge, includes the full name of the explorer.

The bridge, replacing the old Champlain bridge, is currently under construction in Montreal.

The change would align with naming conventions for infrastructure that favour the use of the first and last name of a historical figure, said a recent release.

As part of the consultation, the federal government has asked the public to provide input until Sept. 21.

Infrastructure Canada will then publish the results of the public feedback effort on its website.
