West Transitway Extension (Bayshore Station to Moodie Drive)

Project Overview

In November 2008, Ottawa City Council approved its long-range Transportation Master Plan, which recommends the extension of the West Transitway from Bayshore Station to Moodie Drive as a priority project required to address significant current transit operational concerns in the west urban community. In order to take advantage of near-term federal and provincial funding opportunities, the City has initiated a study to complete all outstanding planning and design work for this facility.

This project is being planned in accordance with the Province of Ontario's Transit Projects Assessment Process (O. Reg. 231/08). Similar to the Individual and Class EA processes, the Transit Projects Assessment Process requires the consideration of alternative designs, public and agency consultation, an assessment of potential environmental impacts and the identification of measures to mitigate impacts. The study will be documented in an Environmental Project Report and placed on the public record for a 30-day review period.

Detailed Design Study – Revised Implementation Strategy

Monday, June 8, 2015
6:30 to 8:30 pm
Michele Heights Community Centre
2955 Michele Drive, Ottawa, ON

The City of Ottawa invites you to attend a Public Information Session for an update on the West Transitway Extension (Bayshore Station to Moodie Drive) project.

Why: To improve transit service reliability, the City has developed a plan to extend the West Transitway from Bayshore Station to Moodie Drive.  This plan received provincial environmental assessment (EA) approval in 2012.  Recently, as part of the detailed design, City staff have identified the potential to reduce the current construction costs by revising the approach for the Transitway extension near Moodie Drive.  This recommendation will be presented to Council for approval.

What: The Public Information Session will allow residents to learn about the proposed revisions.

The revised implementation plan includes  the extension of the West Transitway from west of Holly Acres Road to Moodie Drive and a new transit station near Corkstown Road (east of Moodie Drive).

At the Public Information Session, residents will be able to review the proposed revisions to the implementation strategy, background reports and the proposed design plans, and ask questions. Representatives from the City, the consulting team and the Ward Councillor will be available to discuss the project with you.

When: Construction on this project is currently planned to begin in late 2015 and is estimated to be ready for use in late 2017.

Where: This project will occur immediately north of the Highway 417 westbound lanes, from west of Holly Acres Road to Moodie Drive.
