Construction notice - June 2017

Beginning late June / early July, the City of Ottawa will begin construction work in your neighbourhood. This work is being conducted to improve the aging infrastructure in your community.

Where: The streets included as part of this project are:

  • Dynes Road – Fisher Avenue to Prince of Wales Drive
  • Dynes Road / Fisher Avenue intersection
  • Prince of Wales Drive – Dynes Road to Forest Hill Avenue
  • Dynes Road / Prince of Wales Drive intersection
  • Baseline Road – Prince of Wales Drive to 80 meters west of Prince of Wales Drive

Who: The City of Ottawa has retained the Contractor, Greenbelt Construction Limited, to complete the work.

Why: The purpose of the project is to renew the aging infrastructure on the affected streets and replace the existing trunk storm sewer on Dynes Road and Prince of Wales Drive with a larger pipe to improve the storm sewer system.

What: Specifically, the works proposed include the construction, rehabilitation and/or replacement of: watermains, sanitary sewers, and storm sewers;

  • Lateral services to the property line including backwater valves for lateral storm services;
  • Traffic signals, streetlighting, and utility infrastructure (Hydro Ottawa, Bell, Rogers, and Allstreams);
  • Sidewalks and cycling facilities;
  • Protected intersections (at Fisher Avenue / Dynes Road and Dynes Road / Prince of Wales Drive)
  • Roadway pavement structure;
  • Traffic calming measures on Dynes Road including two speed tables on Dynes Road and a raised pedestrian crossing at the Claymor Avenue intersection.

When: This work is tentatively planned to begin late June/early July. Work on this project is planned to occur from the summer of 2017 to the summer of 2019. 

General construction staging

The majority of work in 2017 will occur on Dynes Road (between Fisher Avenue and Morley Boulevard) and at the Dynes Road / Fisher Avenue intersection. Watermain construction will be completed on Baseline Road in the summer of 2017. Utility and streetlight relocation work will also be carried out in the summer/fall of 2017 on Prince of Wales Drive along with work to install temporary traffic signals at the Dynes Road / Prince of Wales Drive intersection.  Some localized sewer construction and other preparatory work on Prince of Wales Drive is also expected to occur in the fall of 2017.

The work in 2018 will occur primarily on Prince of Wales Drive (between Dynes Road and Forest Hill Avenue) and on Dynes Road (between Prince of Wales Drive and Morley Boulevard). Final asphalt paving, iron adjustments and final landscaping on Dynes Road (between Fisher Avenue and Morley Boulevard) is also expected to occur in 2018.

Final asphalt paving, iron adjustments and final landscaping for the remainder of the project will be completed in the spring / summer of 2019.

Traffic management

In order to accommodate the proposed construction on Dynes Road in 2017, the roadway will be closed to all but local traffic between Fisher Avenue and Morley Boulevard. A single eastbound lane will be maintained on this section of Dynes Road during construction to provide local and emergency vehicle access.

Utility relocation work

In order to accommodate the new sidewalks and cycling facilities, some existing utility infrastructure will need to be relocated within the project area. Hydro pole relocation work will be completed on Prince of Wales Drive between Dynes Road and Villa Crescent, as well as in the vicinity of the Dynes Road / Prince of Wales Drive and Fisher Avenue / Dynes Road intersections. Additional utility relocation work by Rogers, Bell and Allstreams will be completed in coordination with the hydro pole relocation work.

Construction disruptions

The contractor will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but, as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the work, such as traffic delays, noise, dust and vibration. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.

Accessibility

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 undersigned.

On-street parking and socal access

As the various road reconstruction activities are in progress, on-street parking will be restricted. Local access will be maintained to residents, business owners and emergency vehicles. The Contractor is required to provide 24 hour notification of temporary loss of access/egress to your property. A Temporary On-Street Parking Permit will be made available to permit on-street parking within two blocks of your residence when these disruptions occur.

Trees

As part of this project, several trees will need to be removed. This is required for the construction of the cycle tracks and sidewalks. The City takes the removal of trees very seriously. The trees to be removed will be identified by a large orange X. Trees that are to remain will be protected during construction. At the end of construction, a number of new trees will be planted along the corridor.

Lead pipe water pipes

For those homes with a lead water pipe supplying water to the water meter, there is information regarding the City’s Lead Pipe Replacement Program available on the City’s website, Ottawa.ca, or call 3-1-1.

Temporary water services

In addition, during construction, water will be supplied to buildings by temporary water lines. While your property will be on this temporary service, your water usage will be estimated since the temporary service is not metered. Your water bill will be based on your past average water usage. If you have any questions please contact Revenue at 613-580-2444 or WS-Billing@ottawa.ca.

Municipal fire suppression will continue during this temporary period. Please note that private home/building fire suppression systems could be impacted as temporary water is being provided for domestic consumption purposes only. If you have a home/building fire suppression system, it is recommended that you make arrangements with a fire protection services company in order to determine the extent of any impact. For information on minimizing your fire risk contact the City’s Fire Services at 613-580-2424 ext 15371 (East) or ext 15372 (West).

We apologize in advance for any disruptions in water service during construction. Any problems with the temporary water services can be directed to our on-site inspectors, or call the City of Ottawa at 3-1-1.

Pre-construction inspection

You may feel vibrations due to heavy equipment used for specific construction activities.  This is quite common and not usually a problem.

The contractor is required to carry out a pre-construction inspection of homes in the work area if the home owner is in agreement. A representative from the contractor or designate will be contacting you to schedule these inspections.

As part of this contract, the contractor is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until it is entirely complete as well as any damages to private property resulting from these construction activities.  In the event of such occurrences, all claims for damages should be immediately reported both verbally and in writing to the Contractor and to the City’s on-site Representative. This will ensure prompt notification of appropriate authorities to complete the claim investigations.

Project overview

Project description

The City of Ottawa is undertaking the preliminary and detail design for the reconstruction of Dynes Road (Fisher Avenue to Prince of Wales Drive) and Prince of Wales Drive (Dynes Road to Forest Hill Avenue).  The existing trunk storm sewer on Dynes Road and Prince of Wales Drive is to be replaced with a larger trunk storm sewer to improve the storm sewer system.  The sanitary sewer and watermain will also be reconstructed along sections of Dynes Road and Prince of Wales Drive due to the age of the existing infrastructure.  A new local storm sewer will be constructed on Prince of Wales Drive between Forest Hill Avenue and Villa Crescent.  House or building services will be reconstructed to the property line within the limits of watermain and sewer construction.

In addition to the sewer and watermain construction, the following works are proposed:

  • Full-road reconstruction on Dynes Road (Fisher Avenue to Prince of Wales Drive) including replacing curbs, replacing existing sidewalks with 1.8m wide sidewalks and construction of a new 1.8m wide monolithic curb and sidewalk on the south side of the road between Fisher Avenue and Claymor Avenue.
  • Provision of on-street bike lanes on both sides of Dynes Road between Fisher Avenue and Prince of Wales Drive.
  • Removal of on-street parking on the south side of Dynes Road between Fisher Avenue and 847 Dynes Road to accommodate the proposed bike lanes.  Parking bays will be provided on the south side of Dynes Road between 847 Dynes Road and Morley Blvd.
  • Full-road reconstruction on Prince of Wales Drive (Dynes to Forest Hill) including new curbs, sidewalks and cycle tracks on both sides of the roadway.
  • Reconstruction of the Dynes Road / Fisher Avenue and Dynes Road / Prince of Wales Drive intersections with protected cycle-track crossings.  Parking bays will be provided on the east and west side of Prince of Wales Drive between Maryland Avenue and Villa Crescent.
  • Relocation/reconstruction of utilities, as required.
