Campeau Drive Extension - Country Glen Way to Didsbury Road

Project Status: 
Underway

Campeau Drive Extension opens ahead of schedule for pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles!

The City is pleased to announce that Campeau Drive from Country Glen Way to Didsbury Road is now fully open. Last week, sidewalks and cycling lanes opened for use from the Winterset Drive roundabout to the Kanata Commons. Grab your bike, take a walk or a drive through the completed new project!

Completed ahead of schedule, the Campeau Drive Extension creates an important connection to new developments and businesses and improves capacity in a key commuting corridor.

The project included the construction of a four-lane road, segregated cycling lanes, sidewalks, a roundabout at Winterset Road, two signalized intersections at Kanata Commons and Didsbury Road and a new bridge over the Carp River.

This project is part of the affordable road network outlined in the City’s Transportation Master Plan. The approved budget for this project was $32 million.

In the coming weeks, residents can expect to see minor final work and cleanup throughout the project site. This includes minor landscaping and minor sewer work as well as the installation of a small section of pedestrian railing along the multi-use pathway.

There will be no traffic or pedestrian impacts during this work.

Construction Disruptions

Aecon Construction is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until it is entirely complete in 2021. They will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the operation of the work, such as delays when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.

Impact on the Right of Way and Adjacent Private Properties

This construction is within the City’s right of way but may result in some disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. The City will reinstate all sections of landscaping, driveways and walkways that are disturbed by construction. However, if you have plants or any other assets located within the City’s right of way that you want to preserve, we suggest that you may care to move the plants in preparation for the construction work. You may feel vibrations at your home or business due to the use of the heavy equipment needed to complete this work. This is quite common and not usually a problem.
