Announcements and Events

Ottawa – From Wednesday, August 13 to Friday, August 15 there will be increased construction activity in the vicinity of the Airport Parkway pedestrian/cycling bridge that will result in temporary road closures. Flagging operations will take place during off-peak periods.

On Wednesday, August 13 the northbound on-ramp from Hunt Club Road onto the Airport Parkway will be closed at 6 p.m. and will re-open on August 14 at 4 a.m. This closure is required to install a portion of the steel bridge deck of the Airport Parkway pedestrian/cycling bridge. During this work, Ottawa Police Services will be on-site to direct traffic in both directions on the Airport Parkway.

A detour will be in place directing traffic to use Hunt Club Road, Riverside Drive, Hogs Back Road, and the Airport Parkway.

On Thursday, August 14 the Airport Parkway will be closed from Brookfield Road to Hunt Club Road beginning at 7 p.m. and will re-open on August 15 at 4 a.m. This closure is required to install the final section of the steel bridge deck of the Airport Parkway pedestrian/cycling bridge.

A detour will be in place directing traffic to use Brookfield Road, Riverside Drive and Hunt Club Road. 

During both road closures, digital message signs will be in place to remind motorists of the closure and detours.

For the remainder of the project, flagging operations will take place occasionally during off-peak periods. Commuters are reminded to exercise caution around work areas. Regulatory speed limits along the construction zone have been lowered to 60 km/h.
