Parks Canada has advised that, “Investigative work on the Rideau Canal walls in downtown Ottawa will require temporary pedestrian detours along the Rideau Canal Eastern Pathway near the Mackenzie King Bridge. The work will take place between January 22nd and late February 2018, weather dependent.
The first phase of this work will require a closure on the Rideau Canal Eastern Pathway in the area beginning just south of the Government Conference Centre and extending just south of the Laurier Ave. Bridge. The second phase of the work will require a closure beginning just south of the Laurier Ave. Bridge and extending just south of the Corktown Bridge. In both instances, a marked pedestrian detour will be in place and will be kept clear of snow and ice.”
