Advance tree removals (March 2021)

The tendering phase to select a general contractor for the Queensway Terrace Storm Sewer Rehabilitation project is now underway. Review of bids and selection of the preferred general contractor to undertake the work will be carried out in April 2021. Once the preferred general contractor has been retained, a construction startup notice with additional project information will be distributed to residents.

To facilitate the installation of the new storm sewer, the City has retained VS Landscape Group to carry out initial tree and brush removal in advance of the first stage of the project along Henley Street and Alpine Avenue. Other tree removals required to accommodate the trunk storm sewer installation would be carried out separately by the preferred general contractor at a later time.

What: Advance tree removals will be carried out within the City right of way along the north side of Henley Street from Connaught Avenue to Henley Street and the west side of Alpine Avenue from Henley Street to Clarenda Street. Specifically, the work will include the removal of select trees along the north side of Henley Street between Connaught Avenue and just east of Arkell Street and the clearing of trees, shrubs and vegetation between the curb and property line along the woodlots on the north side of Henley Street from just east of Arkell Street to Alpine Avenue and the west side of Alpine Avenue from Henley Street to just north of the existing tennis courts.

Why: The advance tree removals are required to facilitate the installation of the new trunk storm sewer.

When: The advance tree removals are scheduled to take place between March 29 and April 14, weather dependent.

Where: Henley Street from Connaught Avenue to Alpine Avenue and Alpine Avenue from Henley Street to Clarenda Street.

Who: The City of Ottawa has retained the contractor, VS Landscape Group, to complete the work.

Traffic Impacts

To accommodate the advance tree removal work on Henley Street and Alpine Avenue, the Contractor may need to implement temporary lane reductions. However, two-way traffic will always be maintained. Access to local vehicular, pedestrian and cycling traffic will be maintained unless otherwise indicated.

Construction Disruptions

The Contractor 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 work, such as minor traffic delays, noise, and dust.

Notices (2019-2020)

Geotechnical investigation (October 2020)

The City of Ottawa will undertake a geotechnical investigation in your neighbourhood. This work is being done to collect information on the underground soil conditions and will be used to support the final design for the Queensway Terrace Storm Sewer Rehabilitation project.

What: The geotechnical investigation work will involve the drilling of boreholes and obtaining soil samples for environmental testing purposes. Boreholes will be drilled within the City’s right of way.

Why: The geotechnical investigation work supports the development of the final design for the Queensway Terrace Storm Sewer Rehabilitation project.

When: This work will begin in late October or early November 2020 and is expected to take approximately two weeks to complete. Construction is expected to begin in spring 2021 pending budget approvals.

Where: The streets included as part of this project are:

  • Easement from Queensview Drive to Moncton Road
  • Moncton Road from 2653 Moncton Road to Mossdale Street
  • Mossdale Street from Moncton Road to Clarenda Street
  • Clarenda Street from Mossdale Street to Alpine Avenue
  • Alpine Avenue from Clarenda Street to Henley Street
  • Henley Street from Alpine Avenue to Connaught Avenue
  • Arkell Street from Henley Street to 942/943 Arkell Street

Who: The City has retained the Contractor, Golder Associates Limited, to complete the work.

Traffic Impacts

One lane of traffic will always be maintained. Flaggers will be used where required.

Construction Disruptions

The Contractor 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 construction work, such as delays and traffic detours, parking restrictions, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation. For construction activity hours of work, the City of Ottawa follows provincial requirements and the City’s Noise By-law (2017-255).

Utility investigation (August 2019)

The City of Ottawa will undertake a utility investigation in your neighbourhood. This work is being done to determine the exact location of existing underground utilities to support the detailed design for storm sewer rehabilitation in your neighbourhood.

Who: The City of Ottawa has retained Clean Water Works Inc. (CWW) to complete the work.

Why: These utility investigations support the Queensway Terrace Storm Sewer Rehabilitation detailed design.

What: The utility investigations will involve excavation of several small holes using hydro-excavation equipment to measure the actual location of existing utilities to properly account for them as part of the detailed design. The investigation will take place within the City’s right of way in either the paved road surface or grassed boulevard and reinstated with asphalt or topsoil and seed, respectively. In advance of the excavation work, utility locates must be completed which will entail marking of existing utilities with a combination of spray paint and small flags.

When: This work will begin in late August and should take approximately one week.

Where: The limits for this investigation are:

  • Queensview Drive (from 2685 Queensview Drive to 2655 Queensview Drive)
  • Henley Street (from Tavistock Road to Connaught Avenue)
