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.

From the City: Westboro-Dominion Planning Study

9 04 2019

Please see the following information from the City:

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

This email is to let you know that the City of Ottawa is undertaking a review of planning policies and zoning for lands near the Westboro and Dominion Light Rail Transit (LRT) stations. You can visit the project website, Ottawa.ca/WestboroDominionStudy for more information including a short Discussion Paper on the main issues we’ll be reviewing.

Please note: this study should not be confused with the the planning study currently underway for the area south of Byron Avenue, as a result of Interim Control By-law 2018-362. For information on that study, please contact Robert Sandercott at robert.sandercott@ottawa.ca.

The Richmond Road-Westboro Secondary Plan (RRWSP) was adopted in 2008 and provides planning guidance to a large area extending from Island Park Drive in the east to the Sir John A. MacDonald parkway in the west. However, in recent years, development pressure on lands close to the new Westboro and Dominion Light Rail Transit stations has underscored the need for more clarity in that area.

Accordingly, the Westboro-Dominion Planning Study will address in greater detail those lands that are generally:

  • West of Island Park Drive
  • North of Byron Avenue
  • East of Dominion Street, and
  • South of the Transitway and Lanark Avenue.

The Westboro-Dominion Planning Study will not seek to replace the broader Richmond Road-Westboro Secondary Plan (RRWSP.) Rather, it will review, amend and/or expand the policies of the Richmond Road-Westboro plan only as they relate to the lands described above.

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.

The following is a brief status report of the Churchill Avenue Rehabilitation as of November 18th, 2013.       

Churchill Ave Cycle Lanes

Thank you again for your continued patience during the construction of this complex project.  Below is a summary of work that has been completed so far, what is in store for the remainder of this year, and some details on what is to come in 2014. I would like to take this opportunity to express my appreciation for your continued cooperation throughout the construction process.

For further information on the project please visit the project website

Progress to Date

  • All traffic control signals and related roadway modifications at Kirkwood Avenue and Clare Street are complete.

The following works on Churchill Avenue between Princeton Avenue/Clare Street and Carling Avenue have been completed or are on-going:

  • Installation of new gas mains has been completed.
  • Construction of new storm sewers, sanitary sewers, and watermain, including works on connecting side streets has been completed.
  • Road excavation and placement of Granular ‘B’ sub-base for the new road has been completed.
  • Rock drilling and placement of new Hydro poles has been completed.
  • Construction of new concrete curbs is on-going.
  • Miscellaneous traffic control signals, street lighting, and other utility works have been on-going throughout.
  • Hydro Ottawa overhead line construction and transfers in order to allow for the removal of the old poles will continue throughout the fall of 2013, and into the winter of 2013/14.
  • Line painting on the new roadway.
  • Sewer and watermain construction on Churchill Avenue between Princeton Avenue/Clare Street and Byron Avenue will commence in the spring of 2014, following gas main construction, and will continue into the summer months, with road works (curbs, sidewalks, cycle tracks, paving, etc.) and utility pole relocations taking place through the latter portion of the summer and into the fall.

Works for the Remainder of 2013

  • Concrete curb construction will be completed on Churchill Avenue between Princeton Avenue/Clare Street and Carling Avenue, including connecting side streets.
  • Following concrete curb construction, the placement of Granular ‘A’ road base, including vibratory compaction and fine grading of the new roadway will be completed in advance of paving.
  • Paving of base and intermediate courses of roadway asphalt will be completed on Churchill Avenue between Princeton Avenue/Clare Street and Carling Avenue.
  • Construction of temporary asphalt sidewalks behind the newly constructed curbs will be completed for the winter months, along with temporary driveway reinstatements to all residences.  Asphalt ramps will be provided along the newly constructed curbs at each driveway location until such time that surface course asphalt is paved.

2014 Construction

  • Construction of new concrete sidewalks, raised cycle tracks, boulevards, final driveway reinstatements and detailed landscaping will commence in the spring of 2014 on Churchill Avenue between Princeton Avenue/Clare Street and Carling Avenue.
  • Gas main construction on Churchill Avenue between Princeton Avenue/Clare Street and Byron Avenue is expected to commence over the winter months, with completion by the spring of 2014.
  •  Southbound traffic will be detoured away from the construction site via Byron Avenue and Kirkwood Avenue when sewer and watermain construction on Churchill Avenue between Byron Avenue and Princeton Avenue/Clare Street commences.
  • OC Transpo Route 150 will return to its regular route over the winter months, and will then be detoured back to Kirkwood Avenue once mainline sewer and watermain construction commence on Churchill Avenue, north of Princeton Avenue/Clare Street in the spring of 2014.
  • OC Transpo Route 16 will return to its regular route once Churchill Avenue is reopened to two-way traffic, and will not be affected by the 2014 construction.

Traffic Detour / Bus Detours

  • Between Carling Avenue and Princeton Avenue/Clare Street, southbound traffic will continue on the current detour to Kirkwood Avenue from Churchill Avenue via Clare Street throughout the fall.  Churchill Avenue is anticipated to re-open to two-way traffic in early December 2013.
