Construction notice for residents of Elliot Avenue and Rideau River Drive

Beginning the week of November 3, 2014, the City of Ottawa will begin construction work on properties located along Elliot Avenue and Rideau River Drive (in addition to Leanne Street, Phoenix Crescent, Payette Drive, and Granada Drive). This activity will include the rehabilitation of several depressed driveway entrances at the roadway edge.

WHO: The City of Ottawa has hired the Contractor, Ottawa D Squared, to complete the work.

WHY: The purpose of the project is to address concerns related to drainage from the roadway flowing onto depressed driveways.

WHAT: The work consists of the removal of sections of asphalt pavement and the construction of the drainage control features within the private driveways and the right of way of these roadways. As a part of the project, the City of Ottawa will be completing some additional roadway and drainage modifications on several of the streets as identified below.

WHEN: This work is tentatively scheduled to begin the week of November 3, 2014 and should last for approximately 3 weeks on several driveways. The work will resume in the spring, depending on the suitability of the weather for construction during the next month. The construction work will likely be completed during the daytime hours. Local sections of the roadway adjacent to the driveway entrances that are affected may be open to local traffic only, while maintaining acceptable traffic flow.
