Traffic restrictions update


Major road closures on Monday!

Northbound Main Street closed from Riverdale Avenue to Lees Avenue

Ottawa – Beginning Monday, May 2, northbound traffic lanes on Main Street will be closed from Riverdale Avenue to Lees Avenue. From Clegg Street to Lees Avenue will reopen in September, while from Riverdale Avenue to Clegg Street will reopen in November. One lane will remain open to southbound traffic.  A signed detour will be in place.


This traffic restriction is required for watermain and sewer replacements, road reconstruction, paving and landscaping, as part of the Main Street Renewal Project.

Northbound motorists and cyclists will be detoured via Riverside Drive, Bank Street and Isabella Street. It is expected that this lane closure will have significant impacts on traffic during peak hours, and motorists using Main Street northbound should anticipate delays. The public should avoid the area when possible.

Heads Up – Hurdman Pathway Detour

An update from the City regarding LRT work impacting the Hurdman transit way bridge.

As you may know, the Hurdman transitway bridge closes for LRT construction on December 20th; transit users can review any trip adjustments via OC Transpo’s Travel Planner. This closure also effects the pedestrian and cycling networks. The Multi-Use Pathway in the Hurdman Station area will be on the following detour until 2018.  This is to facilitate the closure of the Rideau River Transitway bridge on December 20, 2015 and the ongoing Confederation Line construction.

The red path pathway indicates a closed pathway. The yellow pathway indicates the detour routing as of December 20, 2015.

There is also the new Adàwe bridge between Somerset and Donald that is now open.

Veuillez noter que le sentier polyvalent dans le secteur de la station Hurdman sera dévié jusqu’à la fin de 2017, tel qu’indiqué ci-dessous, et ce, afin de faciliter la fermeture du pont du Transitway enjambant la rivière Rideau, le 20 décembre 2015, et les travaux continus liés à  la Ligne de la Confédération.

Le tracé en rouge indique que le sentier est fermé. Le tracé en jaune indique la déviation du sentier à partir du 20 décembre 2015.

Il ya a aussi le nouveau pont Adàwe entre la rue Somerset et la rue Donald qui est maintenant ouvert.
