The City of Ottawa will be undertaking new sidewalk work along Ahearn Avenue in your neighbourhood.
What: The work involves installing a 2.0m wide sidewalk on the south side of Ahearn Avenue from Scrivens Street to Farrow Street, approximately 460m long. A Pedestrian Crossover (PXO) type D will be installed on Ahearn Avenue, just west of Croft Street. There will also be bulb-outs installed at Scrivens, Doane and Ritchie Streets. New drainage features such as catch basins and landscape drains will also be installed as part of the work.
Why: The new sidewalk will facilitate access between the neighbourhood institutions, residences and transit stops on Greenview Avenue and Carling Avenue. It will fill a gap in the sidewalk network for those walking within the neighbourhood including but not limited to park users, school children and transit users. It will also promote safety for students and all road users.
Where: Ahearn Avenue from Scrivens Street to Farrow Street.
When: Design is underway and is expected to be completed by spring 2023. Construction is planned for the summer to early fall 2023. Residents will be notified prior to construction commencement.
Who: The City of Ottawa has retained Jp2g Consultants to undertake the design of this project.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites.

Impact on the Right of Way and Adjacent Private Properties
The planned construction is within the City’s right of way but may result in some disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. The City will reinstate all sections of landscaping, driveways and walkways that are disturbed by construction. However, if you have plants or any other assets located within the City’s right of way that you want to preserve, we suggest that you may want to move them in preparation for the construction work.
The City of Ottawa, in its commitment to protecting people and the community, continues to work closely with the industry and to comply with recommendations provided by municipal, provincial and federal health officials, as well as the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development.
