Construction and Infrastructure projects
Planned Construction Projects by Ward
- Plan on heading home from downtown a little later than usual:
- Consider staying downtown after work to run an errand, go out for dinner with a colleague or friend, see that movie you’ve been wanting to see, or plan to get your workout in before heading home.
- If you don't have meetings and it’s an option, work from home—all day or head home early the afternoon and finish up your work day there.
- For those who must travel during the peak hours, the City strongly advises you to take public transit so as to avoid congestion on the 174 and other major arteries - OC Transpo’s travel planner makes planning your trip using public transit easy and accessible:
- If you must travel by car, consider carpooling with colleagues or neighbours to help ease the strain on the City’s road network.
- Cycle: Cycling maps and information – detailing bicycle pathways and lanes throughout the city.
- Finally, make use of some of the tools the City offers to stay on top of the latest traffic news as it relates to your route to work:
- Critical traffic alerts can be found on ottawa.ca or on Twitter at http://twitter.com/Ottawa_Traffic
- An interactive construction map and online traffic cameras that allow motorists to see traffic conditions on their typical route before getting on the road can be found online at http://traffic.ottawa.ca
- Ministry of Transportation of Ontario (MTO) cameras along Highway 417.
