On-going and upcoming road work projects will have the following impact on Ottawa traffic:
- O’Connor Street – O’Connor Street is closed to motorists between Laurier Avenue and Somerset Street until Friday, March 2. The closure is required to allow Bell to reconstruct manholes on the west side of O’Connor Street at the intersections of Gloucester, Nepean, Lisgar and Cooper streets.
Motorists are advised to avoid the area and use alternate routes.
The cycling lanes remain open. Cyclists and pedestrians have access throughout the closure. However, there will be intermittent closures of the sidewalk on the west side of the road.
Local access for residents and businesses will be maintained at all times.
- St. Joseph Boulevard – St. Joseph will have lane reductions and traffic shift between Bearbrook Road and Hart Road from Monday, January 29 to Friday, March 30. The lane reductions are required for watermain repairs and road reconstruction. Eastbound traffic will be shifted to westbound lanes with one lane open in each direction. Speed limit through the work zone will be reduced. The eastbound stop for OC Transpo Route 31 will be relocated to the west of the work zone.
- Prince of Wales Drive – Prince of Wales Drive will be reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction between Deakin Street and Blazer Avenue from Thursday, February 1 to Thursday, March 15. The lane reductions are required to perform culvert rehabilitation and roadway reconstruction.
Signed detours will be in place to direct motorists around the closures. For more updates on construction and road work activity across the city, or for information about traffic and travel planning, visit the City’s Traffic Report on ottawa.ca or follow the City’s traffic account on Twitter.
