As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, crews and equipment will be working overnight in addition to daytime activities to complete roadway work along Scott Street between Churchill Avenue and Tunney’s Pasture.
Residents near Scott Street can expect the following construction activities to take place overnight:
- Excavation and grading work using excavators, bulldozers, and compactors. Noise from equipment will be audible and some equipment may cause vibrations.
- Trucks bringing granular material and hauling away excavated materials will be visible and noise from equipment will be audible.
- Asphalt will be laid which may result in audible noise and some vibration from equipment.
- Removal and re-painting of roadway lines will occur overnight and has minimal impact.
- Electrical utilities work (streetlighting/traffic signals) may result in audible noise and some vibration from equipment.
October 1, 2021 to mid-November 2021. Monday to Thursday nights.
Roadway work must be completed prior to the onset of winter when asphalt plants close, and to prepare for the Scott Street Detour that will begin in April 2022.
Night work is needed at times to accommodate work that requires traffic closures that cannot be done during the day, thus mitigating impacts on the travelling public. In addition, for works that are schedule critical, night work may be required to meet the schedule on this large and complex project.
Scott Street between Churchill Avenue and Tunney’s Pasture will see several separate but related work zones, beginning primarily on the south side of Scott Street and then moving to the north side.
Noise and vibration from trucks and heavy equipment is expected.
Motorists should adhere to detours, traffic control signage, posted speed limits, and use extra caution as traffic patterns change. Motorists should use caution and allow for added travel time when moving through active construction corridors.
Light plants, generators and compressors are placed onsite and as far away from neighbouring homes to the extent possible and are wrapped with noise reduction barriers.
Water and other dust suppressants will be used to reduce dust and street sweepers will clean adjacent roadways regularly. Trucks will only use approved haul routes.
The City of Ottawa thanks residents for their patience as we work to complete these construction activities. If you wish to receive our impact sheet about vibration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The construction work outlined in this notice is subject to change. Work may be delayed or extended due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.
