Iona Broadhead Helena Boards are here

The City held a public information session July 11 about the upcoming road reconstruction work on Iona, Broadhead, and Helena. 


Traffic Vision: Bayview/Scott intersection bike count and analysis

I've been captivated by the traffic patterns and bike volume around Bayview/Scott since the snow melted. One of the dynamics about which I'm concerned is the potential for a right-turning car from Scott to Bayview to whip through while a cyclist is attempting to cross mid-block to resume their ride. I wasn't watching for the full duration of this filming session, but am curious to see if the Internet catches a problem.


Iona, Broadhead, Helena Public Consultation #2 July 11

The next public information session about the upcoming road reconstruction work on Iona, Broadhead, and Helena will happen Tuesday, July 11, from 7pm to 9pm in the Laroche Room at the Hintonburg Community Centre, 1064 Wellington Street West. We hope to see you there.

Here is the notice from the city:


Happy Canada Day from Kitchissippi!

I had a great time Friday and Saturday visiting some of our urban campers at Tom Brown, a bunch of block parties, some of our seniors' buildings and other parties around the ward yesterday as residents and visitors celebrated Canada Day. It was a delightful 150th celebration! Enjoy a short video clip of some of their greetings below. Thanks to all the City staff who ensured a safe and enjoyable day for all, including Matt Perkins and some of our Parks staff (pictured) who supervised the urban camping grounds.

Open House: 979 Wellington St W proposed development

We are hosting the second open house for the proposed development at 979 Wellington St W. There have been some changes to the development in the last few weeks, and we would like to bring the updates to the community for further feedback. You can read more about the previous design on our earlier blog post. 

The major updates to the design were as follows:


Proposed changes in Kitchissippi to OC Transpo routes

No surprise to anyone, in roughly mid-2018 the Confederation Line light rail will begin running between Tunney’s Pasture and Blair Station. This will be the beginning of a profound transformation in how residents of Ottawa move around the City, and there will be multiple changes to how public transit offered by OC Transpo will work.

Bayview MUP pathway paving in June

I've been advised that beginning as soon as June 5 at 9:30 am, paving will begin on the multi-use pathway at Bayview Station to and from the new culvert. The paving is expected to take approximately a week, during which the configuration will again temporarily change.

During the paving, riders and pedestrians will need to use the MUP running just north of Albert (MUP#6) to bypass the construction area.
