Comments are requested by April 22, 2021 on the proposed changes for the Bank Street Canal Bridge.
What: The City is designing improved active transportation (i.e., cycling and pedestrian) facilities on the Bank Street bridge over the Rideau Canal. In September 2020, City Council members endorsed a concept design for the bridge crossing that included a reduction of vehicle lanes over the bridge from the existing four lanes to three lanes in order to accommodate active transportation facilities.
The City of Ottawa has once again converted the outside curb lanes on the Bank Street Bridge for more space, safety, and active transportation.
Reconfiguration of Bank Street Bridge Public Consultation
Permanent changes are also coming to the bridge, moving from a 4-lane model to a 3-lane model. The display boards showing the proposed changes have been uploaded to the project webpage.
Have you been bothered by the increase in heavy truck traffic on Sunnyside Avenue over the years? Non-local heavy trucks continue to use Sunnyside Avenue despite regulations that prohibit this. Heavy trucks can use non-designated truck routes for local deliveries and servicing, but this is meant only as an exception. Their use on this narrow residential street interfere with day-to-day life, work and sleep. It increases the risk to pedestrians, cyclists, and students, parents and employees of Hopewell Public School.
