Project description

The City of Ottawa is undertaking the detailed design and construction of Albert and Slater Streets (between Bay Street and Elgin Street), as an opportunity to repurpose this corridor following the launch and on-going operation of the Confederation Line Light Rail Transit (LRT). With the removal of rapid bus transit from these streets, this project will incorporate watermain reconstruction/refurbishments, resurfacing of Albert Street, as well as the implementation of cycling facilities.

This project aims to implement the vision from the Downtown Moves: Transforming Ottawa’s Streets, which was approved by Council on March 27, 2013. The overall plan aims to make walking, cycling and transit use more comfortable and convenient by redistributing and improving the streetscape environment.

Project purpose

Improve walking, cycling, transit, general traffic and underground infrastructure.

Project timing

Preliminary and detailed design: spring 2019 to winter 2020
Design assignment completion: winter 2020
Construction start: to be determined
Construction completion: to be determined
