The 2016-2017 phase of repair work on the walls of the Rideau Canal in downtown Ottawa is nearly complete. As part of the final steps of the repair work, the contractor will be removing fences and additional safety measures from around the construction site. Beginning at approximately 9:00 pm on June 8, the barriers along the southbound lane of Colonel By Drive will be removed. A signed detour route will be in place as this work will require the overnight closure of Colonel By Drive. The road closure will be from the Clegg Street intersection along Colonel By Drive to the intersection at Leonard Avenue.
