Public Open House #2


Thursday, April 25, 2013
Jean Pigott Hall
City Hall
110 Laurier Avenue West
6:30 to 9 p.m., presentation: 7:30 p.m.

The City of Ottawa is continuing its planning and environmental assessment study for the proposed Western Light Rail Transit Corridor (WLRTC) and is seeking public input. The goal of this study is to identify the most effective way to build on the first phase of LRT currently under construction (Confederation Line) to bring service to Baseline Station, increase transit use and provide higher quality transit service. This study will consider alternative options and designs toward determining a final alignment to inform the City’s Transportation Master Plan (TMP).

Study Area
The Study Area stretches between Bayview and Baseline Station and includes the area from the Sir John A Macdonald Parkway south to Carling Avenue and from the O-Train west to Lincoln Fields and Baseline Station.
