Residents near the interchange can expect the following construction activities to take place during the day and night:

  • Trucks bringing granular material and hauling away excavated materials will be visible and noise from equipment will be audible.

Anticipated Impacts
Noise and vibration from trucks and heavy equipment is expected.

Site lighting and generators will be used to power lights which are a safety requirement for overnight work.

Motorists should adhere to detours, traffic control signage, posted speed limits, allow for added travel time and use extra caution when moving through active construction corridors as traffic patterns change.

Pedestrians and cyclists should use extra caution and adhere to posted signage when localized detours are in-place, to ensure safety.

For residents whose property borders Highway 174, equipment in the area may cause additional noise and vibration as the work progresses.

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