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.
The first floor of Carleton’s MacOdrum Library is now home to a new city-focused resource centre — the Ottawa Resource Room.
The official grand opening, on February 4, 2016, was an opportunity for library staff to provide tours of the space and give an understanding of how it operates.
