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. Accessible formats and communication supports are available, upon request.
In order to accommodate the proposed construction traffic restrictions will be required.
Traffic Restrictions - Greenbank Road
- The Contractor is permitted to close Greenbank Road at the structure for a maximum of one (1) weekend.
- Access shall be provided for local residents affected in the closure area
Access to private properties including pedestrian and cycling access, will be maintained throughout the construction period unless otherwise communicated.
On-Street Parking and Local Access
As the various road reconstruction activities are in progress, on-street parking will be restricted. Local access will be maintained to residents, schools, parks and emergency vehicles.
The Contractor is required to ensure that homeowners have access to their property. In the event that access to your driveway is restricted for a short period due to construction activities, you will be contacted in advance by the project team and given a temporary On-Street Parking Permit that will allow on-street parking within two blocks of your residence when these disruptions occur.
Impact on the Right of Way and Adjacent Private Properties
The reconstruction is within the City’s right of way but may result in some disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. The City will reinstate sections of landscaping, driveways and walkways that are disturbed by construction. However, if you have plants or any other assets located within the City’s right of way that you want to preserve, we suggest that you move the plants in preparation for the construction work.
Lawn Irrigation Systems
If you own a subsurface lawn irrigation system, please notify the City Project Manager identified below.
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 on-site Representative. This will ensure prompt notification of appropriate authorities to complete the claim investigations.
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 and dust. You may also feel vibrations due to heavy equipment operations. Vibrations from construction activities are quite common and rarely cause any problems. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
For any emergency outside normal working hours, please call the City at 3-1-1.
For general project information, please contact the City’s Project Manager.
