Belfast Road closed between Tremblay Road and Trainyards Drive

Beginning Tuesday, May 20, the section of Belfast Road between Tremblay Road and Trainyards Drive will be closed for construction. Pedestrian and cyclist access will be maintained, however motorists are advised to detour on St. Laurent Boulevard. Signs have been posted advising the public of the detour. Businesses in the area remain open as usual.

This closure is necessary to complete the relocation of existing utilities and the construction of tunnel structures to the new Maintenance and Storage Facility on Belfast Road. This facility will house the operations, maintenance and storage facilities for the Confederation Line, Ottawa’s Light Rail Transit (LRT) project.

For more information about the construction activity happening across the city, or for information about traffic and travel planning, visit ottawa.ca.

Fermeture du chemin Belfast entre le chemin Tremblay et la promenade Trainyards

À compter du mardi 20 mai, le tronçon du chemin Belfast entre le chemin Tremblay et la promenade Trainyards sera fermé pour construction. L’accès sera maintenu pour les piétons et les cyclistes, cependant, les automobilistes devront passer par le boul. St-Laurent.

Des panneaux ont été installés pour aviser les automobilistes de la déviation. Les commerces du secteur demeureront ouverts selon l’horaire habituel.

La fermeture est nécessaire afin de déplacer les services publics actuels et de construire les structures du tunnel pour les nouvelles installations d’entretien et de remisage du chemin Belfast. C’est à cet endroit que seront situées les installations des opérations, d’entretien et de remisage de la Ligne de la Confédération, le projet de train léger sur rail (TLR) d’Ottawa.

Pour de plus amples renseignements sur les travaux de construction en cours dans la ville, ou pour des renseignements sur la circulation afin de planifier vos déplacements, visitez ottawa.ca.
