Closure of pathway through 200 Lees Avenue
This week the University of Ottawa will close the pedestrian and cycling pathway running through its 200 Lees campus so that the new stadium and playing field can be built. Pedestrians and cyclists will be detoured over the Lees Avenue bridge into Sandy Hill or across the Transitway bridge. The informal pathway along the river behind the university buildings will also be closed while the stadium/field are constructed. The planned closures will last until the end of August. The university is considering a request from the OECA to have the pathway reopened as soon as the soil remediation work is completed on the portion of the site containing the pathway.
