Bridge work being done as part of the Highway 417 Expansion project requires the temporary closure of Lees Avenue and the Rideau River Multi-use Pathways to pedestrians and cyclists.
Lees Ave. from Chapel Cres. to the Transitway is currently closed while the Lees Avenue Underpass is being replaced. The street is scheduled to reopen in September, once the bridge is replaced.
The Multi-use Pathways on either side of the Rideau River will be rerouted for 4-6 weeks each in that area: The West side pathway starting as early as August 11, and the East side pathway starting in early September.
