The City of Ottawa is commencing a study to develop a functional road design for Alta Vista Drive between Faircrest Road and Edge Hill Place. Aging underground utilities such as sewers and watermains, from Billings Avenue to Kilborn Avenue and Wesmar Drive to Edge Hill Place, require renewal in the short to medium term, respectively. This provides an opportunity to upgrade the design of surface elements such as the roadway, sidewalk and cycling facilities.
Study Result and Timing
This Study will result in the preparation and approval of a Functional Design that will serve as a basis for subsequent detailed designs for the reconstruction of sections of Alta Vista Drive, as applicable. It is anticipated that this Functional Planning Study will be completed before the end of 2019.
Various opportunities for public involvement will be provided, including a public open house to present study material. Public input and comment is encouraged throughout the project process. The study will receive input from a combined Technical and Public Advisory Committee and other stakeholders during the study.
You are encouraged to participate in the study by attending consultation events or by directly contacting the study team with information, comments or questions. Updated project information will be posted periodically on the study website.
A Public Open House is scheduled for early Summer 2019. Notifications for the Public Open House will be provided closer to the date on the project website with e-mail notifications to the study contact list.
