Ottawa – The City of Ottawa will excavate and replace a culvert on Malakoff Road over a period of two weeks starting Monday, February 22 and on Franktown Road starting Monday, February 29.
Replacement of the culvert on Malakoff Road, located almost a kilometre north of Cowell Road, will require the full closure of a section of Malakoff with a detour via Pierce Road, McCordick Road and Donnelly Drive. Signage will be in place to notify the public of the temporary closure.
Starting on Monday, February 29, construction will begin on Franktown Road for two weeks. During the culvert replacement on Franktown Road, 1.5 kilometres east of Munster Road, one lane will remain open for traffic at all times. Flagpersons will control alternating traffic in the open lane.
These culvert renewals are Ottawa on the Move projects. Ottawa on the Move is about keeping our community and economy moving forward through strategic investments in a number of transportation, water, and sewer projects to build a better city and create jobs.
