When

Work will continue to take place Monday to Friday during daytime hours, weather permitting. Overnight work will occur in areas with approved permits. All instances of overnight work will be communicated prior to the work commencing.

Where

Please see map below for noted work locations from Leitrim Station to Limebank Station.

Anticipated Impacts:

  • Overnight work could be required to minimize impacts to traffic and to maximize the construction season.
  • The intersection realignment at Earl Armstrong Road and Bowesville Road will have traffic implications and motorists, cyclists and pedestrians should follow construction signage.
  • Construction of the new Leitrim Park & Ride could impact the existing facility, but communications will be made through OC Transpo about any impacts to transit users.

Accessibility is an important consideration for the O-Train Extension project. The O-Train Extension team makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact stage2@ottawa.ca. The safety of the public and the workers is paramount, and we thank you for your patience during construction.
