Why: The City of Ottawa will be proceeding with construction to resurface the asphalt main driveway, replace concrete curb and adjacent pathway and providing greater accessibility to the Ron Kolbus Centre.
What: Work will involve re-grading the site, resurfacing asphalt, and re-forming curbs. The project will be done in phases to better handle the traffic, OC Transpo buses and residents who use the Centre.

Impact on the Right of Way and Adjacent Private Properties
You may feel vibrations at your home or business due to the use of the heavy equipment needed to complete this work. This is quite common and not usually a problem.
It should also be noted that the Contractor assumes full responsibility for the construction work until completion as well as for any damages to private property resulting from these construction activities. In the event of such occurrences, all claims for damages should be immediately reported both verbally and in writing to the Contractor’s Project Manager and to the On-Site Inspector. This will ensure prompt notification of appropriate authorities to complete the claim investigations. Also, the City will be taking photographs to ensure private properties are returned to their original or better condition.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact the City’s Project Manager:
