A 1.4-kilometre section of the Rideau Canal Eastern Pathway, from Clegg Street to the Bank Street Bridge, will be closed while Parks Canada repairs the canal walls. A detour route for pedestrians and cyclists, primarily along Echo Drive, will be in place for the duration of the rehabilitation work from Monday, November 7, 2016 until the end of May 2017. The stairways at Echo Drive and Riverdale Avenue will also be closed during this work.
Temporary measures will be put in place at either end of the detour to assist pedestrians and cyclists in safely crossing Colonel By Drive as part of the detour route.
And please consult the Parks Canada website at www.pc.gc.ca/rcOttawa for more information on the project.
