The Trillium Multi-Use Pathway is rerouted near the Dow’s Lake area to facilitate construction activities on the site of The Ottawa Hospital’s (TOH) new campus.
The previous multi-use pathway traveled due south at Carling Avenue, adjacent to the rail corridor, and connected to Prince of Wales Drive.
The rerouted multi-use pathway takes the following route:
- East on the south side of Carling Avenue
- South at Preston Street, on the west side of the street
- Southwest along Prince of Wales Drive
Maintaining and continuing this popular active transportation link throughout construction is a priority with approximately 1,500 people using this multi-use pathway each day.
This initial multi-use pathway along Preston Street will temporarily be three metres wide for both cycling and pedestrian use, in addition to the existing narrow sidewalk. As the roadwork and signalized intersection improvements continue in 2024, so will the pathway and sidewalk be enhanced to 3.5 and 3-metre widths, respectively.
