Traffic Update: The Riverdale & Area Traffic Study 2014-2016

This summer major sidewalk modifications are coming to the intersection of Cameron and Riverdale Avenue. New corner bulb-outs to improve pedestrian safety and to emphasize stop signs at this busy crossing are part of the Riverdale & Area Traffic Study initiated in 2013.

The Riverdale Study (approved in two stages in 2014 & 2015) also recommended three speed humps: two on Riverdale (one between Windsor & Belmont and the other between Cameron & Bank) and one on Sunnyside Avenue, east of Bank near St. Margaret Mary’s Church. These three speed humps are also expected in the next few months.

Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee Community Report 2016

Introduction

The OSCA Traffic and Safety Committee has been representing Old Ottawa South at the Lansdowne Transportation Monitoring and Operations Committee (LTMOC) for a little over two years.  Each spring LTMOC presents its Annual Report to the Transportation Committee at City Hall.  The community groups and associations participating at LTMOC meetings also develop community reports and these are included with LTMOC’s Annual Report.

When LTMOC’s Annual Report is presented to the City’s Transportation Committee, the communities also have an opportunity to present in person their summations of the year’s activities and to respond to questions from the Transportation Committee.

Early in March, OSCA’s 2016 Community Report was submitted to LTMOC and can be read in its entirety here at www.oldottawasouth.ca.

After considering several spots, City staff identified 9/12 Ossington and at 18/19 Ossington as the most suitable locations.
