Just got this notice from the City of Ottawa. Sounds like an exciting project!
O’Connor Street Bikeway Functional Planning Study
Notice of Study Commencement and Planning Workshop
Thursday June 26, 2014
Colonel By Room,
Ottawa City Hall,
110 Laurier Avenue West
6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
Registration is required: Space is limited, so please register by
sending an email to OConnorBikeway@ottawa.ca by June 23.
The City of Ottawa has initiated a study that will develop a
functional plan for a cycling facility along the O’Connor Street
corridor. The goal is to develop a Cross-town Bikeway that
would link Confederation Boulevard (at Wellington Street), the
Central Business District, Centretown and the Glebe. The
O’Connor Street Bikeway is classified by the City’s
Transportation Master Plan as a spine route and identified in the
Ottawa Cycling Plan as a Phase 1 Cross-town Bikeway project
to be completed between 2014 and 2019. The study focuses on
the O’Connor Street right-of-way from Wellington Street to Glebe
Avenue. Opportunities for cycling segments along Metcalfe
Street will also be evaluated.
The study will review and evaluate alternative design options for
the bikeway and will lead to a recommended functional design
concept that has the highest likelihood of implementation based
on technical feasibility, affordability and community input.
Your participation will play a large part in the success of the
project. The process will be open and collaborative involving
area residents, building and land owners, businesses, corridor
travellers, as well as various municipal and agency interests.
At this workshop participants will:
• Learn more details about the project
• Gain an understanding of existing conditions and
• Review draft conceptual options prepared by the study
• Share thoughts and ideas on alternative means to
achieve the project goal and to address potential community concerns.
Registration: Space is limited, so please register by sending an email to
