COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation and the City of Ottawa is committed to protecting people and the community. The Province of Ontario has allowed certain businesses and workplaces to reopen, including all municipal construction projects, as long as they comply with strict measures for public health and safe operations. In addition to the City’s ongoing work on critical infrastructure projects, we are now able to resume work on other construction projects that were paused due to the COVID-19 outbreak. The City is working closely with the industry and complying with restrictions and recommendations provided by municipal, provincial and federal health officials, as well as the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development.
The City of Ottawa continues to take precautionary steps to protect members of the public. As an alternative to hosting in-person public information sessions, information is being posted to Ottawa.ca and virtual information sessions are being held. The City remains committed to keeping the public informed of projects occurring in your neighborhood.
The City of Ottawa invites you to review and provide comments on the Woodroffe Avenue Multi-Use Pathway Project by June 29, 2020. Information can be submited by email or by phone to the contact below.

The City has a proactive communications approach. The project team will update you on the project using different methods to communicate including letters and posting information on Ottawa.ca.
What: The proposed work includes the construction of a three-metre paved multi-use pathway along the west side of Woodroffe Avenue from Norice Street to the south end of the Transitway south of Baseline where it intersects with Woodroffe Avenue. There will be a four-metre grass boulevard separating the proposed pathway from the roadway and sidewalk. This will provide space for future landscaping and increase the safety and comfort of pedestrians and cyclists.
Why and Where: The 2013 Ottawa Cycling Plan (OCP) identifies the need for construction of a multi-use pathway along the west side of Woodroffe Avenue from Norice Street to the Baseline Transitway south driveway, linking to the intersection of the existing Pinecrest Creek and Centerpointe Pathways. The pathway will improve cycling connectivity between residential, educational and employment nodes along Woodroffe Avenue and will connect existing cycling facilities. It will also enhance walking and cycling access to the future Baseline Light Rail Transit (LRT) station.
When: Construction is planned to begin in September 2020 and is expected to be completed by the end of December 2020. Notifications will be sent to residents prior to the start of construction.
Who: Engineering consulting firm, JP2G Consultants, has been retained by the City to develop a design and provide contract administration services for the construction contract.
