This view looks north along the Grand River from the Footbridge.  While Highway 24 runs in very close proximity to the Grand River through Cambridge and North Dumfries, travelers are seldom offered a vista of the scenic river.  The Grand River is Southwestern Ontario's most predominant waterway, and serves as the lifeblood, and major source of drinking water for hundreds of thousands of people across Southwestern Ontario.

Southerly view as Highway 24 crosses overtop of Highway 401.  During the Fall of 2010, Highway 24 was widened by an extra-northbound lane from Pinebush Road to the westbound freeway off-ramp -- so this photo is slightly out of date.
