Starting October 12, 2021, Hydro Ottawa is initiating a project that includes the installation of 13 maintenance holes and a duck bank located on Richmond Road. This project has an estimated completion date of March 28, 2022 and is a result of a directive received from the City of Ottawa Traffic Inspection Department. Please note that Hydro Ottawa continues to follow the provincial directives surrounding COVID-19 and would like to confirm that this work has been deemed essential to providing a safe and reliable supply of power to our customers.
In the current environment, Hydro Ottawa recognizes that this is a sensitive time and understand that construction and power outages can be very disruptive. Their goal with this work is to maintain the electricity system so that they can prevent larger and longer unplanned outages from occurring in the future.
Overall, this work will include:
- Closure to Bicycle lanes
- Lane Reductions
- Closure to Sidewalks
There are no scheduled power outages as a result of this work. Residents may notice increased construction presence throughout the project, including construction vehicles. Traffic control and lane reductions will be implemented throughout the project to ensure that roads remain safe and accessible to residents and staff.
- Streets: Richmond Road, Pinecrest Road, Assaly Road, Croydon Avenue, Starflower Lane
- Project estimated start date: October 12, 2021
- Project estimated end date: March 28, 2022
- Contractor on site: Bradley Kelly Construction
In addition, all customers in the affected area will receive advanced notices of the project, and be provided with a point of contact.
Hydro Ottawa would like to take this opportunity to thank all residents and businesses for their patience and understanding throughout the delivery of this important project.
