Beginning in August 2017, you will notice construction work occurring in your neighbourhood. This activity is being conducted to improve transportation safety on this portion of Heron Road.
What: A cycle track will be constructed from Colbert to Jefferson on the south side of the roadway. The existing sidewalk located adjacent to the roadway will remain.
Where: Colbert to Jefferson within the south boulevard of the Heron Road right-of-way.
Why: This construction will help to complete the boulevard infrastructure, offering transportation choice while improving safety for all road users.
Who: Contractors working for the City of Ottawa will be completing this construction.
When: This work will begin in August 2017 and will be completed by November 2017.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact the undersigned.
To allow the work to be completed, on-street parking will be prohibited during the construction period. Signs will be placed 24-hours in advance indicating the temporary parking prohibition. Vehicles parked at these locations may be towed at the owner’s expense. Parking fines may also apply. In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be issued by the Construction Site Inspector to authorize on-street parking within two blocks of your residence. This pass does not entitle you to park in “no parking zones” at any time.
The contractor will assume full responsibility for the construction work in its entirety. They will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the operation of the work, such as delays and traffic detours when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. You may feel vibrations at your home or business due to the use of the 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.
Impact on the right-of-way and adjacent private properties
The construction work is within the City’s right-of-way and will not result in any major disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. Lawns, pathways, gardens and/or driveways may be disturbed. The affected areas will be reinstated as soon as possible after construction is completed.
