Multi-use Pathway along the Transitway Rerouted until end of 2016

Please be advised that beginning this week, the multi-use pathway along the Transitway, between Hurdman and Train stations will be detoured as station and guideway work begins as part of the O-Train Confederation Line construction. This closure and detour will be in effect until the end of 2016.

While this closure is in place, pedestrians and cyclists will be detoured along alternate pathways via  the Riverside Drive/Highway 417 intersection and along Rideau River (as shown on the graphic attached). For the safety of all pedestrians and cyclists, please follow the signage on site.

Rideau River Multi-use Pathways (MUPs) update for February

This email to advise you that, at this time, we do not anticipate any impacts to the Rideau River MUPs from construction activity at Hurdman Bridge through the month of February.

If this should change for any reason, I will follow-up with another update – otherwise my next update will preview the status of the MUP for the month of March.

The President of OCA received the following email:

Good afternoon Mr. King,

I am stepping in for my colleague Evelyn to handle Confederation Line

advise you and the Overbrook Community Association that the tentative
date for the opening of the Coventry Pedestrian Bridge is now February 9, 2015.

If I should receive any further information, I will be sure to update
you. In the interim, please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time
if you have questions regarding the 417-widening or the Confederation
