Tree cutting on Domicile site begins March 14, 2016

Tree cutting will begin on the Domicile site at Main/Springhurst/Oblate beginning March 14, 2016. Appropriate tree protection measures will be taken for any trees that will be retained. Domicile will also begin prepping the site for construction during that week, and then the five townhouses on Main Street will be removed as soon as the City of Ottawa approves their demolition permit.

Main Street construction and upcoming lane closures

The northbound lane closure on Main Street from Clegg Street to Lees Avenue will remain in effect until September 2016. Beginning in May, the Main Street northbound lane from Riverdale Avenue to Clegg Street will also be closed to traffic until November 2016 (exact dates to be provided in April). Northbound traffic will continue to be detoured via Riverside Drive, Bank Street and Isabella Street. As a result of the northbound lane closure, OC Transpo buses will be detoured from Main Street.

When it will not be possible to have northbound traffic north of Riverdale Avenue, the OC Transpo routes #5 and #16 serving Old Ottawa East will run from Main Street to Elliot Avenue to Marlowe Crescent to Clegg Street and back to Main Street. Until the Main Street northbound lane north of Clegg Street is open to traffic, the OC Transpo routes #5 and #16 will continue to run from Main Street to Clegg Street to Colonel By Drive to Hawthorne (back on the regular route #5) and back to Main Street (for route #16).
