Just a little heads up for the weekend that sections of the Queen Elizabeth Driveway and Colonel By Drive will be temporarily closed to motor vehicle traffic today and tomorrow.
These closures are necessary to remove the Rideau Canal Skateway changing and washroom facilities.
Today’s sked looks like this:
- 8:30 am to 12 pm: Queen Elizabeth Driveway (northbound and southbound lanes) will be closed between the Bank Street Bridge and Fifth Avenue.
- 11:30 am to 3 pm: Colonel By Drive (northbound and southbound lanes) will be closed between Hog’s Back Road and the Bronson Avenue Bridge. On-ramp and off-ramp access at the Bronson Bridge will remain open.
While tomorrow brings you this:
- 5:30 am to 1 pm: Colonel By Drive (northbound and southbound lanes) will be closed between Hawthorne Avenue (Pretoria Bridge) and Daly Avenue.
There are also some pathway detours in place as well.
Some sections of the Rideau Canal pathways may be closed for a short period during the installation. Users must comply with the flag persons’ directions, and proceed along designated detours.
The National Capital Commission urges motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to exercise caution and to respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage and flag persons at the site.
