Construction work will begin on Wednesday, September 9 to extend the Trillium multi-use pathway, located east of the O-Train Trillium Line, from Young Street to just south of Carling Avenue. This project is being built in partnership with the National Capital Commission.
The existing multi-use pathway from Young Street to Carling Avenue will be closed during the construction period. Please follow signed detours. During construction, cyclists and pedestrians will still be able to access Hickory Street Bridge and Adeline Street.
The work will include construction of a new asphalt multi-use pathway, pathway lighting, a raised crossing at Beech Street, a new connection to Adeline Street/Hickory Street Bridge, and a new signalized cross-ride at Carling Avenue. Once completed, cyclists and pedestrians will be able to use this new link from the Ottawa River Pathway to existing pathways south of Carling Avenue. Construction will be complete in spring 2016.
With all of the construction-related activities underway, residents are encouraged to be flexible with commuting times, stagger work hours or use alternative means for travel. The public is asked to consider options such as transit, walking, cycling or carpooling.
