A virtual public information session is being held on Thursday, July 28 at 7 pm. Please register if you wish to participate.

What: The City of Ottawa is undertaking the design and implementation of three protected intersections on Scott Street. Transit lanes along Scott will also be removed and repurposed to better serve the community.

The proposed work includes the installation of separate, protected cycling and pedestrian facilities, upgrades to the traffic signal facilities, improvements to the transit stops at each intersection, and public realm enhancements.

Why: With the removal of the bus detour on Scott Street, and because the corridor forms part of the City’s primary east-west bikeway, the City of Ottawa is upgrading the intersections to improve the level of safety as well as accommodate vulnerable road uses, including pedestrians and cyclists.

Where: East of Holland Avenue to East of Bayview Station:

  • Scott Street at Parkdale Avenue intersection
  • Scott Street at Carruthers Avenue intersection
  • Scott Street at Bayview Station Road intersection

When: The current project schedule is as follows:

  • Design is expected to be completed in fall 2022
  • Construction is expected to start in spring 2023

Notices will be sent prior to construction.

Who: The City of Ottawa has retained the design consulting firm, Robinson Consultants Inc., to develop a design for the Scott Street Intersection Modifications Project.
