On Tuesday, July 7, from 9 am to 3 pm, motorists using the Queen Elizabeth Driveway will experience a partial closure of the northbound lane between Somerset Street and Gilmour Street. This closure is required to permit maintenance work. The southbound lane will remain open to traffic in both directions and flaggers will be present to direct traffic. A section of the Rideau Canal Western Pathway will also be closed between Somerset Street and Gilmour Street.
The National Capital Commission (NCC) urges the public to exercise caution and respect the flag persons and signage in place. Traffic cones and directional signage will be in place to direct motorists, pedestrians and cyclists to the established detour, and to ensure worker safety.
