The City of Ottawa is in the process of completing the detailed designs for the renewal of Main Street and portions of Rideau River Drive. The Lees Avenue portion of the overall project went under construction in summer 2014.
The recommended design concept was approved by City Council on July 17, 2013. The City has planned this project under Schedule C of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (EA) process. The EA process was finalized in September 2013 after the completion of an Environmental Study Report. On this basis, Main Street will be renewed as a “complete street” featuring cycle tracks, wider sidewalks, and space for streetscaping. To accomplish this, vehicle lane reductions will be implemented in some locations. The street design varies along its approximately 2km length. Construction of the project is planned to commence in 2015. Early utility reconstruction works may go under construction in fall 2014.
At this time, all interested persons are invited to attend a third Public Open House. The purpose of this Open House is to present the draft detailed designs including road geometry, streetscaping details, public art selection, utility works, construction timing, and preliminary traffic management plans during construction. City staff and their consultants will be available to discuss the project, receive your input, and answer any questions. Following the Open House, input and comments will be accepted until December 4, 2014.
For further information or to provide comments, please contact the City’s project manager or the consulting team project manager at the addresses below.
