The City of Ottawa invites you to attend a Public Information Session to discuss the Nepean Trail cycling facility project planned in your neighbourhood. This meeting is part of Councillor Keith Egli’s Ward 9 Fall Open House and will allow residents an opportunity to review the design features of the project. Representatives from the City, the design consultant and Ward Councillor Keith Egli will be available to discuss the project and to answer your questions.
What: The City of Ottawa is undertaking the preliminary and detailed design for new multi-use paths and on-road cycling lanes. Just under 5 kilometres in length, these “missing link” cycling facilities extend from Farlane/Baseline to Woodfield/Merivale.
Why: This work is needed to improve cycling network connectivity.
Who: Design consulting firm, McIntosh Perry, has been retained by the City of Ottawa to develop a design for new cycling facilities along the Nepean Trail network.
When: The current project schedule is as follows:
- Preliminary design: fall 2017
- Design completion: spring 2018
- Construction start: summer 2018
- Construction completion: December 2018
Where: The new cycling facilities will include on-road cycling on Farlane Boulevard, Wallford Way, Warbonnet Drive, Beaver Ridge, Capilano Drive, Birchwood Drive, Grant Carman Drive and Woodfield Drive. The project includes intersection modifications to accommodate cyclists at Meadowlands Drive and Grant Carman Drive, and at Merivale Road and Colonnade Road. New multi-use paths will be built behind the Emerald Plaza (connecting Birchwood Drive to the Meadlowlands Drive and Grant Carman Drive intersection) and on the west side of Merivale Road from Colonnade Road to Woodfield Drive.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation at the public open house, please contact the undersigned. For further information about this project and/or to submit comments, please contact:
