Project description

The City of Ottawa has initiated the preliminary design process for modifications to the intersection of Hunt Club Road and Riverside Drive. Specifically, the northbound approach to the intersection along Riverside Drive, and the northbound and southbound right-turn channels on Riverside Drive at the intersection, are to be reconstructed, together with cycling improvements. The objective is to improve intersection operations and safety for all users. Minor changes are expected to existing landscaping within the road right of ways.

The project limits have been increased to include additional roadway resurfacing for Riverside Drive from Hunt Club Road to approximately 300 metres south. The northbound and southbound right-turn channels now include raised crossings for pedestrians and cyclists.
