Main Street Rehabilitation / Clegg-Colonel By Intersection

The National Capital Commission (NCC) recently approved the temporary detouring of northbound OC Transpo service from Main Street onto Colonel By Drive between Clegg Street and Hawthorne Avenue. This detour is necessary to maintain northbound bus service within the community during the Main Street ‘Complete Street’ transformation from 2015 to 2017. The NCC has also approved an intersection improvement, including signalization, at the Colonel By / Clegg intersection. This work will also commence this spring.
