COVID-19 is an unprecedented situation and the City of Ottawa is committed to protecting people and the community.
The Province of Ontario has allowed certain businesses and workplaces to reopen, including all municipal construction projects, as long as they comply with strict measures for public health and safe operations. In addition to the City’s ongoing work on critical infrastructure projects, we are now able to resume work on other construction projects that were paused due to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The City is working closely with the industry and complying with restrictions and recommendations provided by municipal, provincial and federal health officials, as well as the Ministry of Labour, Training and Skills Development.
The City of Ottawa’s stormwater infrastructure benefits all areas of the city – urban, suburban and rural. During major rainfalls and snow melts, ditches and culverts play major roles in diverting the runoff from fields, properties and roadways to creeks, streams and rivers. In 2020, there will be approximately $19.5 million to support the renewal of drainage culverts crossing city roads across the city, with $9 million for renewing or replacing culverts in rural areas.
