The City of Ottawa has initiated a study to develop a Recommended Functional Design Plan for Bank Street from the Riverside Drive North to Ledbury Avenue. The Plan will include preliminary roadway geometry and general arrangements, typical cross sections, pavement markings, intersection details, preliminary landscape designs, and identify property requirements and project costs.
The Plan will build upon the Preliminary Design for Bank Street (Riverside Drive South to Walkley Road) completed in 2007 and will incorporate recommendations emerging from the 2012 Bank Street Community Design Plan (CDP), the 2013 Official Plan (OP) and associated Transportation Master Plan (TMP) update, and other recent studies and City policies such as the Complete Streets Implementation Framework.
Your feedback is an important component for this renewal project (full road, watermain and sewer replacement). Key elements that will be presented for comment include:
- Cycle tracks
- Widened sidewalks
- Transit priority measures
- Additional medians and the removal of the two way left turn lane in select locations
- Intersection designs, and
- New traffic control signals
Updated project information will be posted periodically on the study website.
You are encouraged to participate in the study through dialogue with your local Community Association or by directly contacting Ann Selfe to have your name placed on the study mailing list to receive project updates or to submit comments and questions.
