6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview Road

Please join the City of Ottawa to discuss the proposed traffic and transit detours along Scott Street between Tunney’s Pasture and the future Dominion LRT Station during construction of the Confederation Line Western Extension (Stage 2) of the O-Train Light Rail Transit Project.

The preliminary detour plans involve detouring buses on a temporary Scott Street extension to the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway between the Transitway and Workman Avenue, a temporary bridge over the Transitway near Roosevelt Avenue and intersection improvements at Scott Street and Lanark Avenue/Island Park Drive.

The meeting will outline, among other things, the rationale and implementation strategies for proposed traffic options and detours in this area, how the City will replace the Transitway while the LRT Dominion Station is under construction, the expected duration of the detour, the results of noise, vibration and air quality analysis, and mitigation strategies.
