Pieces of the old Champlain Bridge will be sold off: report

The federal government might have an idea about how to finance the demolition of the Champlain Bridge once the new one is built alongside it.

Radio-Canada is reporting that some of the cost could be covered by recycling and selling the bridge's remains — including the concrete, steel, aluminum and copper.

The new bridge is expected to be built by 2018, with demolition work on the old bridge expected to begin shortly after, in 2019 or 2020.

The government expects to recover tens of millions of dollars by selling off what's left of the old bridge.
