Opportunity for discussion on Confederation Line East


The City of Ottawa invites residents to provide feedback on two environmental assessment studies for the Confederation Line East light rail transit extension (Blair to Trim) and the related widening of the Highway 174 / Prescott-Russell County Road 17 corridor (Highway 417/Split to Clarence-Rockland).


Residents can attend three open houses to learn more about the recommendations resulting from these studies and to discuss any concerns. All three open houses will take place from 6 to 9 p.m. and will include a presentation at 7 p.m.:

  • Monday, April 20: Community Pentecostal Church, 1825 St. Joseph Boulevard, Orléans
  • Tuesday, April 21: R.J. Kennedy Community Centre, Hall A & B, 1115 Dunning Road, Cumberland
  • Thursday, April 23: Clarence Creek Community Hall, 418 Lemay Street, Clarence Creek


Open house presentations and displays will include the proposed design of the Confederation Line light rail transit extension from Blair Station to Trim Station and road widening from Highway 417-Split to Clarence-Rockland. A summary of comments and responses from the February 2015 consultation will also be provided, along with an explanation of next steps.


The eastern light rail transit extension is one of three environmental assessment studies currently underway as part of Stage 2: the City’s plan to add 19 new stations and 30 kilometres to our light rail transit network, extending it farther east, west and south by 2023.


Additional information about the study, public consultations, project updates and contact information can be found at ottawa.ca/easternlrt and ottawa.ca/hwy174and17study. Materials presented at all public consultations will also be posted on the website for those unable to attend.
