On October 12, 2021, the City hosted a PAC, Public Advisory Committee, to comment on options presented for the renewal of Richmond Rd from Bayshore to Pinecrest. The meeting was the 1st opportunity for the City to share some design options and gather feedback.
Parsons has been contracted by the City of Ottawa to complete the functional design of Richmond Road from Bayshore Drive to Pinecrest Road. The new design is expected to include a combination of unidirectional and bidirectional cycling facilities throughout the corridor, as well as improved pedestrian facilities.
As part of this design project, Parsons will also undertake early concept development for a cycling facility from Pinecrest Road to Carling Avenue to inform future project definition and network planning. No implementation timeframe is currently identified for this segment.
