You’ve probably heard this saying: “There are two seasons in Ottawa – winter…..and construction”. Here are a few traffic notes to keep in mind for this week:
· Dynes Road – Starting on Monday, July 10 until December 2017 Dynes Road will be closed to traffic, between Fisher Avenue and Morley Boulevard, to accommodate improvements to storm water infrastructure. Local and emergency vehicle access will be maintained with a single eastbound lane.
· Maple Grove Road – A section of Maple Grove, between Huntmar Drive and Terry Fox Drive, will be closed for construction work from Monday, July 10 at 9 a.m. until Friday, July 14. After that, Maple Grove Road will reopen between Terry Fox Drive and Silver Seven Road, but will remain closed between Silver Seven Road and Huntmar Drive until Friday, July 21. Access to businesses in this stretch of road will be maintained and detours will be in place.
· Ottawa Regional Road 174 – Beginning on Monday, July 10, motorists will see construction traffic barrels on Ottawa Regional Road 174, approximately 400 metres east of Peter Harkness Lane, while work for the replacement of two culverts takes place. Limited lane reductions during off-peak hours may be necessary for equipment setup and traffic control measures.
· St. Pierre Street in Orleans – Due to watermain repairs on Joseph Boulevard, St. Pierre Street remains closed with no exit to St. Joseph Boulevard until Tuesday, July 11 at 5 p.m. The same watermain repairs impacting St. Pierre St. will close Maissoneuve Street at St. Joseph Blvd. The closure starts Monday July 10th and lasts until Thursday July 13th at 5pm.
