The City of Ottawa has initiated a study to develop a Recommended Functional Design Plan to provide for the introduction of Transit Priority Measures along Carling Avenue from Lincoln Fields to Bronson Avenue. The plan is intended to be comprised of low-cost and easily implementable measures for the interim.  The Plan has been prepared in accordance with policies presented in the 2013 Official Plan (OP) and associated Transportation Master Plan (TMP) and related studies.

At the Open House you will have the opportunity to review information such as:

  • Revised pavement markings and signage
  • Minor modifications to reallocate the existing outside (third) lane to a bus-only lane
  • Cycling treatments at signalized intersections
  • Multi-modal level of service assessment for pedestrians, cyclists, transit service and general traffic for the Carling Station to Bronson and Kirkwood Intersection segments
  • A protected cycling facility for the Carling Station (Preston Street) to Bronson Avenue segment
