Beginning in June, you may notice construction work occurring in your neighbourhood. This activity is being conducted to improve your community and renew road surfaces in your area.
Who: The City of Ottawa Contractor, Ottawa D-Squared Construction Ltd., will complete the work.
What: Work includes rehabilitation of the roadway from King Edward Avenue to Friel Street. In addition, some work on the addition of a bioretention facility and cycling lane will be constructed.
Why: The City of Ottawa will also be addressing drainage improvements along the route.
When: This work will begin in June 2016 and will be completed by November 2016.
Where: The work will be occurring on Stewart Street from King Edward Avenue to Friel Street.
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 accommodation, please contact the undersigned.
To allow the work to be completed in a timely manner, on street parking may be prohibited during the construction period. Signs will be placed 24-hours in advance indicating the parking prohibition. Vehicles parked at these locations may be towed at the owner’s expense. Parking fines may also apply. In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be issued by the Construction Site Inspector to authorize on-street parking within two blocks of your residence. This pass does not entitle you to park in “no parking zones” at any time.
The contractor will assume full responsibility for the construction work in its entirety. They 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 operation of the work, such as delays and traffic detours when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. You may feel vibrations at your home or business due to the use of the heavy equipment needed to complete this work. This is quite common and not usually a problem. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
Impact on the right-of-way and adjacent private properties
The construction work is within the City’s right-of-way and will not result in any disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. Lawns, pathways, gardens and/or driveways will not likely be disturbed. The affected areas will be reinstated as soon as possible after construction is completed. The contractor w?ill also be dropping a letter off to the residents advising of future building condition surveys. Appointments for inspections will be arranged by the survey ?firm. If you have any small plants that you would like to save that are located in the area between the sidewalk and the curb, please transplant these before construction begins.
