Proposed Roadway Modifications – Notice of Public Open House April 25

Notice of Public Open House-April 25

The City has identified a requirement for the rehabilitation/replacement of the sewers, watermain and the reconstruction of associated roadway pavement including the replacement of curbs and sidewalks (where existing) along King George Street in addition to the replacement of the watermain in Quill Street in the Overbrook Community. The key goals of the project are to reduce the risk of basement flooding during severe rainstorms and to ensure the safe supply of water to area residents. The project is now possible with the recent completion of the Rideau River Collector (RRC) twinning project, since the outlet for the improved sanitary system is now available.

Also included in the project is the narrowing of King George Street in an effort to standardize residential roadways and incorporate concrete sidewalks for the convenience and safety of pedestrians.


At the open house you will have the opportunity to:

·         Review plans displaying existing conditions and general information on the scope and limits of the recommended sewer, storm and watermain rehabilitation works.

·         Review the proposed pavement rehabilitation works including curbs and sidewalks, where applicable.

·         Bring forth any issues pertaining to the project that have not yet been identified.


Wednesday, April 25th, 2012 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. – Drop-In Overbrook Community Centre 33 Quill Street, Ottawa
