July 17, 2014, Montreal, Que. – The federal government is
hoping that the sale of recycled materials will help to reduce the demolition
costs for the removal of the Champlain Bridge.

 

According to a report from the CBC, the cost of the bridge’s
removal currently sites at around $161 million. It is estimated that over
13,000 tonnes of steel and 165,000 tonnes of concrete will be removed as part
of the demolition.

 

By selling both the recycled concrete and the recycled
steel, the government could receive tens of millions of dollars to offset the
cost of the bridge removal.
