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, including all municipal construction projects, to continue operations subject to compliance with strict public health and safety protocols. 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 is planning to build a new sidewalk along Parkhaven Avenue, in order to improve pedestrian traffic flow to the school and the adjacent parkland area.
What: Work involves building a concrete sidewalk and curb on the west side of Parkhaven Avenue.
Why: The requirement for a pedestrian connection to the school and parkland, warrant their construction.
When: This work is planned to begin as early as mid-June and be completed by end of August 2021.
Where: West side of Parkhaven Avenue, from Georgina Drive to Dresden Crescent.
Who: The City has retained the Contractor, Adria Concrete & Paving Ltd., to complete the work.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact the project team listed below. Accessible formats and communication supports are available, upon request, at the following link: ottawa.ca/accessibleformat
One lane of traffic will be maintained at all times in both directions for motorists and cyclists. Pedestrian access will be maintained.
Impact on the Right of Way and Adjacent Private Properties
The reconstruction 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 the plants in preparation for the construction work.
The contractor is obligated to provide 24-hr notification of temporary loss of access/egress. In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a Temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be distributed to permit on-street parking within two blocks of your residence.
The Contractor will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but, as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the work, such as traffic delays, parking restrictions, and noise. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.
For construction activity hours of work, the City of Ottawa follows provincial requirements and the City’s Noise By-law (2017-255).
For any emergency outside normal working hours on weekdays and weekends, please call the City at 3-1-1. For further information about this project, please contact the City’s Project Manager.
