City of Ottawa Notification – New dedicated bus lanes on Highway 417

The work to expand Highway 417 from Nicholas to the Split is winding down. Starting Sunday June 28, a dedicated bus lane on Highway 417 in both directions will be used so the O-Train Confederation Line project can start converting the Transitway from Hurdman to Blair to a Light Rail Transit system.

Motorists should still expect periodic lane closures until this fall to allow for the remainder of the construction and clean-up operations to occur. Until this time, the speed limit will remain 80 km/h.

Also as of June 28, the ramp from the westbound Highway 417 east of the Split, to Highway 174 eastbound, will be closed until 2018. Motorists are encouraged to use Innes Road as a detour. An additional eastbound lane on Innes Road is being constructed and will open in the fall to compensate for increased traffic during peak periods. Continue reading
