Safe Crossing at Colonel By Drive/Clegg, and Re-routing of OC Transpo Bus Routes During Roadwork

Below are two letters from the OOECA to the NCC regarding support for the new pedestrian signal at the intersection of Colonel By Drive and Clegg Street, as well as support for re-routing OC Transpo buses along Clegg Street and Colonel By Drive during the reconstruction of Main Street.

Echo Drive - Possible Safety Enhancements

At the OOECA annual general meeting on November 11, 2014, a question from the membership was raised of whether there could be safety improvements for users of Echo Drive. Several OOECA board members met with Ottawa South Community Association (OSCA) board members and others to discuss this. For more details, read the summary of the discussion. Please contact if you have any thoughts or comments on this discussion.

Update on Eastern and Western Rideau River Pathways

The City of Ottawa advises that both the eastern and western Rideau River pathways will be reopened on December 13 and are anticipated to remain open until early January.

Main Street Sidewalk Construction Update

The Main Street utility construction work is well under way. Due to delays in the work on Marlowe Crescent, the completion date has been pushed back slightly. Hydro Ottawa now anticipates that the bulk of the remaining work will be completed by December 5th, with some minor activity continuing up to the following Friday (December 12th, 2014).
