Image - April - June 2024: Night Work between Roosevelt Avenue and Tunney’s Pasture Station

As part of the Stage 2 O-Train Light Rail Transit (LRT) project, crews and equipment will be working during the daytime and overnight in the LRT Guideway (former Transitway trench) between the temporary Transitway bridge and Tunney’s Pasture Station.


Night work is required in the LRT Guideway, between the temporary Transitway bridge and Tunney’s Pasture Station. Night work may include excavation and hauling required for the installation of utilities (storm drainage/subdrain/culvert) and duct banks, Westboro Station construction, and to prepare the guideway for LRT track installation. Vacuum truck excavation is NOT permitted overnight.


KEV anticipates that periodic night work will be required and ongoing throughout 2024. Night work will occur subject to a valid noise by-law exemption, in addition to daytime activities on weekdays and weekends.

Night Work: Monday to Saturday 10:00 p.m. to 7:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m. to 9:00 a.m. Sundays and Statutory holidays - will occur, as required, through June 2024.


To complete critical project work that is time sensitive and/or required during off-peak hours.


Within the Transitway trench, between Roosevelt Avenue (temporary Transitway bridge) and Tunney’s Pasture Station. *Night Work is NOT permitted in the Kichi Sibi Station area.

Anticipated Impacts

Noise and vibration from crews and equipment can be expected. Impacts from night work should be limited, as the work moves throughout the LRT guideway trench.

All construction vehicles and equipment working overnight will be equipped with broadband back-up alarms to minimize operational noise. Trucks use approved haul routes and workers and contractors park in designated parking areas.

Site lighting for overnight work will be required to maintain safe working conditions for workers. Crews will place and/or direct the light to mitigate impact on residents at the surface.

All pedestrian, cycling, bus, and vehicular movements will generally be maintained during construction, with some detours. Temporary multi-use pathway (MUP) closures may be required to allow for construction work to proceed safely.

Pedestrians and cyclists should use extra caution when localized detours are in place and adhere to all posted signage, when travelling to ensure safety, as patterns may have changed.

The City of Ottawa thanks residents for their patience as we work to complete these construction activities.

The safety of the public and workers is paramount,
and we thank you for your patience during construction.
