Main Street Renewal Project and McIlraith Bridge Rehabilitation Project
The City of Ottawa is undertaking the Functional, Preliminary and Detailed Design for the renewal of Main Street (from Echo Drive to the Rideau River) and portions of Lees Avenue (from Main Street to Chestnut Street) and Rideau River Drive (from Main Street to 130m South of Main Street). The proposed works include the introduction, rehabilitation and/or replacement of various components of the street infrastructure within the right-of-ways. The project designs will have regard for the streets’ various planned functions and the various community contexts along the project limits. The project has developed alternatives, some of which include lane reductions to accommodate a cycling facility in the corridor. As such, the project is being planned as a Schedule C project under the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment process.
