What: Public Advisory Committee Meeting #2 – Richmond Road Complete Street Study
When: Monday May 30, 2016 at 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
Where: Notre Dame High School, 710 Broadview Ave (Library) – please enter from the parking lot in the back.
The City of Ottawa has identified a requirement for the reconstruction of a section of Richmond Road between the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway and Cleary Avenue as part of the Stage 2 Light Rail Transit Western Extension Project. The design and reconstruction will meet with a “Complete Street” standard, based on the City of Ottawa’s Complete Street Implementation Framework (2015). This will also incorporate the City of Ottawa Cycling Plan (2013), and focus on enhancing multi-modal transportation in this corridor.
The review and design will consider the introduction, rehabilitation and/or replacement of:
· Sidewalks, pathways, cycling, and local transit facilities;
· On-street parking;
· Traffic lane configuration;
· Opportunities for amenities including street furniture, landscaping and public art;
· Street lighting and signage;
· Opportunities to reduce stormwater flows and/or address drainage issues; ;
· Utility reconstruction/relocation as required;
· Traffic control system; and
· Road structure and pavement.
At this meeting we will begin to discuss options, existing conditions and start to gather key input from the invited stakeholders.
Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions. This will be a brief presentation of the project and information provided on future projects in the area.
