Historic Bridge Design/Engineering, Good for use today

Reference Number

 I do not believe that the bridge cannot be maintained and repaired, and have the historic engineering and design be kept in place. I believe that maintenance and keeping a good design, will be less financially troublesome than creating a new design that is not as well suited, and does not have any historic value, and has the potential to be an eysore, and will also require maintenance as bridges do. The Alexandra has a pedestrian element and a historic element, which are already in place, and already associated and embedded in the history of Ottawa, and can very well be maintained and repaired at less expense than building an entirely new bridge. Options to preserve the bridge have not been fully explored and genuinely considered.. A new bridge will likely be problematic.
