I visited the Ottawa area last week September 17-18, 2018 to view the status of the I and M Canal rewatering project. This has been a proposal in work for years. Actual work began summer of 2018. The total length of the project is .6 miles. It extends from Guion Street to the Illinos Railway one block West of Canal Street. The pictures above are of the work site.
Thanks to Arnie Bandstra from the Ottawa Canal Association.
