Construction: spring/summer 2022
Approved project funds to date are $810,000
An online public engagement opportunity was held in the spring of 2021, to present the preliminary design drawings to the public. At that time the public was able to review the design, ask questions and provide comments on the proposed works.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites.
