As you are likely aware, construction work for the extension of the West Transitway between Holly Acres Road and Moodie Drive is nearing final completion. As part of the work, a new concrete sidewalk is being constructed along the north side of Corkstown Road between the new Moodie Station and the intersection of Crystal Beach Drive.
Who: The contractor, Karson Konstruction, is responsible for the sidewalk construction work.
Why: The new sidewalk will improve connectivity along Corkstown Road and provide direct pedestrian access to the new Transitway station.
What: The construction work includes approximately 600 metres of new 1.8-metre wide concrete sidewalk along the north side of Corkstown Road between Moodie Station and Crystal Beach Drive. The work also includes the filling in of the existing ditch in front of the eight residences immediately west of Crystal Beach Drive.
When: The sidewalk construction will begin in early May 2018 and will be complete by the end of June 2018.
Where: Corkstown Road between Moodie Station and Crystal Beach Drive.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodations, please contact the City of Ottawa Project Manager listed below.
Parking and traffic
Some minor traffic delays should be expected as a single lane closure along Corkstown Road will be in-place during the day (with traffic flagged around the work zone). The Contractor is required to ensure that residents have access to their properties. In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be issued by the On-Site Inspector to authorize on-street parking within a few blocks of your residence.
Impact on the right-of-way and adjacent private properties
The sidewalk construction is located within the City’s right-of-way but may result in some disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. Lawns, pathways, gardens and/or driveways may be disturbed. The affected areas will be reinstated as soon as possible after construction is completed.
Sump pump outlet
If your sump pump currently discharges to the existing ditch along the north side of Corkstown Road, please notify the City’s Project Manager identified below.
