110 Laurier Avenue West
The City of Ottawa is undertaking the detailed design and construction of Albert and Slater Streets (core sector between Bay and Elgin Streets), 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, the opportunity exists to improve these corridors for other users and implement elements of “Complete Streets” including the addition of cycling facilities.
This project also includes the replacement of sections of watermain that have reached the end of its life cycle along Albert and Slater Streets as well as the replacement of the sanitary sewer on Metcalfe Street.
Overview of Downtown Moves Study
This project aims to implement the vision from the Downtown Moves: Transforming Ottawa’s Streets study which was approved by Council on March 27, 2013.
Downtown Moves is an Urban Design and Transportation Study that identifies ways to create more vibrant, inclusive, safe and accessible streets for residents, workers and visitors of all ages and abilities across Ottawa's Central Business District (CBD). The overall aim is to make walking, cycling and transit use more comfortable and convenient by redistributing and improving the streetscape environment. The study informs the City on how to best capitalize on the transformative opportunities presented by the implementation of the Confederation Line light rail transit (LRT) project, and seamlessly integrate the future stations at street level.
