I have been periodically photographing the progress of work around the National Arts Centre, which is the site of a project that is seeing the placement of a glass enclosure around much of the building. It's a project due to be finished in time for Canada Day next year, and you can find the previous post here. In the meantime, the building is still in use for concert performances while the work goes on.
This view is across Elgin Street as I was crossing; the structure that's being erected will feature a new main entrance on this side.
Work is nearly complete on the other project here, the National War Memorial, which has been having some renovation work being done on the grounds around the monument this past summer. Early this month, much of the outer fencing that's surrounded the site was removed, giving a view to the passerby of what's been going on. The site is due to be accessible shortly after the beginning of the month, giving residents a chance to pay their respects in the days leading up to Remembrance Day. For now, it's enough to be able to look at the Memorial, all polished up after being under scaffolding for the last few months.
Coming onto Plaza Bridge, I got different perspectives of the work at the NAC before crossing over to the east side of the Rideau Canal. I also got perspective shots of the Canal, looking both ways. These shots were taken after water levels had been lowered for the winter season.
