The construction work outlined in this notice is subject to change. Work may be delayed or extended due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Anticipated Impacts

Noise and vibration from trucks and heavy equipment is expected.

Night work is needed at times to accommodate work that requires traffic closures that cannot be done during the day, thus mitigating impacts on the travelling public. In addition, for works that are schedule critical, night work may be required to meet the schedule on this large and complex project.

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.
