One of the steps being taken by the university to mitigate traffic congestion on campus is the construction of a new road called Stadium Way that will connect Bronson Avenue and University Drive through Parking Lot 5, near Carleton U's Athletic Field, MNP Park. This would be as a right-in, right-out for cars only from Bronson Ave, including a pedestrian sidewalk connection along the north side of Stadium Way, raised pedestrian crosswalks, and street lighting revisions. Construction on Stadium Way begins the week of July 2, 2019.

These projects by the National Capital Commission and the City of Ottawa are going to have a major impact on campus. In summary:
