Coliseum demolition along Bank Street likely to start next week

City of Ottawa

Demolition of the front section of the Coliseum building along Bank Street (formerly the 67's box office) is scheduled to begin next week. Removal of designated substances, like asbestos, will be complete before demolition starts, and the contractor will water the work area to keep dust down.

In order to protect pedestrians during this phase of the demolition, the sidewalk in front of the building will be closed and the bus stop will be moved. A short term lane reduction to the northbound lane on Bank Street may be needed between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. in the vicinity of the Coliseum to facilitate the demolition of the building.

This temporary closure will last for up to two weeks.

Signage will direct pedestrians to use the sidewalk on the west side of Bank Street at the traffic lights at Holmwood and at the main entrance to Lansdowne Park. Bus stops at the north and south ends of the site – in front of Lansdowne near the Bank Street Bridge and on Bank Street at Holmwood– remain open during the temporary closure.
