The City of Ottawa has identified the need to replace sanitary sewers and watermains on Ashburn Drive, Wigan Drive, Hogan Street and Ness Street with construction planned to begin in 2020.
The proposed scope of work involves full road reconstruction including new sidewalks as well as minor road widenings in select locations to improve safety.
The study area below identifies the project limits for these planned renewal works.
The Study Process to determine the surface design of these streets will follow the City of Ottawa Complete Street Implementation Framework, including Official Plan policy directions and public consultation.
The focus in 2017 will be to confirm sidewalk locations and the extent of the minor road widenings. Detailed design will follow in 2018/2019 with an emphasis on specific details such as road, sewer and watermain locations and elevations, landscaping and traffic management during construction.
Provided below are tentative timelines for this project:
- Public Information Session #1 (Road and Sidewalk Scope) – 2017
- Detail Design – 2018-2019
- Public Information Session #2 (Details Review) – 2018/2019
- Construction – 2020
Public input and comments are welcomed in 2017 with respect to the roadway scope of work, including the need for sidewalks, and in 2018/2019 as part of the review of the specific details of work. All Public Information Session materials, including additional project updates, will be available on this website for review and comment. You are encouraged to participate.
