To accommodate growth in the Kanata South and Stittsville communities, this project involves the widening to four lanes of Old Richmond Road between Hope Side Road and West Hunt Club Road. An intersection expansion of Moodie Drive and West Hunt Club Road is included as well as potentially some widening to four lanes along West Hunt Club Road between Old Richmond Road and Highway 416. The project also includes roundabouts at Hope Side Road/Old Richmond Road, Stonehaven/Old Richmond Road, and Old Richmond Road/West Hunt Club Road. This project is required to create road capacity and the widening will minimize the impact on the Greenbelt lands and protect the Stony Swamp Conservation Area and Wetlands.
The Preliminary Design also included work on Hope Side Road. The Hope Side Road portion of the project involves the widening to four lanes of Hope Side Road between Eagleson Road and Old Richmond Road, and it included a roundabout at Eagleson Road and Crownridge Drive. This portion of Hope Side Road will be completed under a separate project, once funding becomes available.
Work is proceeding to obtain both Federal and Provincial Approvals. Detailed design is underway and construction is expected to start in 2018 subject to project permits (such as MOECC, MNRF and RVCA) and property acquisition.
Preliminary design: 2015 to 2016
Detailed design: 2017 to 2018
Construction: Fall 2018 to 2021 (construction start subject to permits and approvals)
Design & Construction: $38.7 M (Based on 2018 Budget Approval)
