Byron Linear Park MUP improvements coming

You are here

You may have noticed, or you soon will notice, construction in the Byron Linear Park between Golden Avenue and Redwood Avenue. The city recently sent this to homes in the immediate area.

Byron Multi-Use Pathway – Redwood Avenue to Golden Avenue

Contract No. CP000199



Dear Resident,

In early October, the City of Ottawa will begin construction work in your neighbourhood. This work is being conducted to improve the pathways in your community.


Who:       The Contractor, Torus Construction Corp., will be performing the construction work for the City of Ottawa.


Why:       Due to the age and condition of the existing pathways, the City of Ottawa will be proceeding with their replacement.


What:      Work will involve the removal of existing pathway and construction of new pathway. During the construction, there may be temporary lane reductions and parking restrictions along Byron Avenue in the vicinity of the work to take place.


When:    This work is planned to begin early October. Completion is anticipated by the end of November.


Where:   Byron Linear Park between Redwood Avenue and Golden Avenue.



Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact the Contractor’s Representative or the City’s Project Manager noted below.


Construction Disruptions

The Contractor will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but, as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the work, such as traffic delays, parking restrictions, and noise. We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.


Impact on the Right-of-Way and Adjacent Private Properties

The reconstruction is within the City’s right-of-way but may result in some disruption to part of the private property directly adjacent to the work. Lawns, pathways, gardens and/or driveways may be disturbed. The affected areas will be reinstated as soon as possible after construction is completed, at no cost to you. However, if you have plants or any other assets located within the City’s right-of-way that you want to preserve, we suggest that you may want to move the plants in preparation for the construction work.


Contact Information

For any emergency outside normal working hours on weekdays and weekends, please call the City at 3-1-1. For further information about this project, please contact the City’s Project Manager.
