Richmond Road construction partial detour to Byron

10 06 2019

From the Office of Councillor Leiper:

****************************************************

As I’ve been noting in the newsletter, there is urgent construction planned to repair the the water main on Richmond Road between Redwood and Fraser. This week, an open house was held at which the City made public its plan to divert eastbound traffic onto Byron for the project, which would likely take place from around the end of July to as late as November this year.

As shown in the attached display board (click the picture to embiggen), Richmond would become a westbound one-way, while eastbound traffic would be diverted to Byron (which would remain two-way).

Richmond cannot safely accomodate two-way traffic during the construction. While the width of the construction will actually be fairly narrow, the machinery needs room to work and two traffic lanes can’t be maintained through the corridor.

Eastbound buses will, as a consequence, be diverted as well (the 11 and 153).

My first concern is for pedestrian and cycling safety. I have taken the initial step of asking the City to consider crossing guards at the affected intersections to account for the higher level of traffic on Byron. Advisory cycling lanes were to be installed soon and those are being delayed until some time after the detour. While the MUP is available as a safe, segregated route for cyclists, I am evaluating whether or not there are additional measures we can request from the City and would be interested in hearing your suggestions and feedback.

Highway 417 Eastbound On and Off Ramp Closures at Maitland

10 05 2019

From the Ministry of Transportation:

*********************************************************

I just wanted to follow up with respect to the closures of the Highway 417 Eastbound off-ramp and on-ramp at Maitland Avenue. These ramps are both still scheduled to be closed prior to the morning rush-hour on Monday May 13th.

In conjunction with the City of Ottawa traffic section, we have modified the detour for Northbound Maitland Avenue traffic trying to access the Highway 417 EB on-ramp. To avoid additional congestion at the intersection of Carling Avenue and Maitland Ave, which is currently being used as the detour for the Carling Avenue WB off-ramp closure, Northbound Maitland traffic will be detoured to Carling Avenue via Woodward Drive to Clyde Ave. I have attached a rough sketch showing the detour route.

Scott Street closure – this weekend, August 25 to August 26

24 08 2018

From the Office of Councillor Jeff Leiper

Scott Street closure – this weekend, August 25 to August 26

Between August 25 and 26, Scott Street between Island Park Drive and McRae Ave will be closed. However, local traffic will be permitted.
A detour for all other traffic will be in place, with the appropriate directional signage. The detour will use Island Park Drive, Richmond Road, and McRae Ave. Note that a request for a Local Traffic Only sign at Clifton and Richmond Rd has been made.
The closure is occurring so that the contractor for 1960 Scott St can install their crane. A Road Closure Permit has been issued by the City for this work.




Richmond Rd at Churchill Ave: Intersection Improvements

31 05 2018

From the city. Please see the attached poster for additional information.

Richmond at Churchill Location

WHO:           The Contractor, TBD., will perform the construction work for the City of Ottawa.

WHY:            The purpose of this project is to enhance pedestrian safety and accessibility and to minimize conflicts within the intersection. Transit priority measures are also being implemented as part of the work.

WHAT:         The construction work will consist of all new sidewalks and traffic signals in conformance with Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards in each quadrant of the intersection. The sidewalk in the north-west and south-west quadrants will be widened to enhance pedestrian facilities and to provide traffic calming within the intersection. The existing bus bay on the north side of Richmond Road will be removed and the impacted parking spaces near the existing bus stop location will be relocated just west of the existing bus stop. The Contractor will be expected to stage work to maintain access to buildings as work is completed.

WHEN:         The construction is planned to commence at the end of May, early June 2018 and will be completed by end of August 2018.

WHERE:        Construction is expected to be limited to within 100m of the Richmond Road/Churchill Avenue Intersection.
