Construction disruptions

Ottawa D-Squared Construction Ltd. will assume full responsibility for the construction work in its entirety.  The existing multi-use pathway will be closed during the construction period; however, cyclists and pedestrians will be able to cross through the construction site between the Hickory Street Bridge and Adeline Street.

Also, residents adjacent to the construction site may feel vibrations at their residence due to the use of heavy equipment needed to complete this work. This is quite common and not usually a problem.  We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
