LRT Phase 2 Update – Nov 2019 – Train Léger Phase 2

We received the following information regarding phase 2 of the LRT. There are two messages, scroll down to see both.

Hello Stakeholders

Many of you have likely observed crews completing Stage 2 preparatory works along the East Extension corridor, at Ottawa Road 174. Kiewit-Eurovia-Vinci have completed significant geotechnical investigations via borehole drilling. They continue to remove some trees and vegetation (only what is required for construction) on both the north and south sides of OR 174. They have also begun the slight relocation of highway ramps and lanes at the Montreal Road Interchange, most of which will occur during overnight hours as not to impact vehicular traffic during peak hours. These activities are all required to begin station and guideway construction next year. For the time being, such construction activities will be listed at the following page as they get underway: https://ottawa.ca/en/planning-development-and-construction/major-projects/stage-2-light-rail-transit-project/ongoing-work.

Additionally, conceptual renderings for new LRT stations are available at this page: https://ottawa.ca/en/planning-development-and-construction/major-projects/stage-2-light-rail-transit-project/confederation-line-east-extension by clicking on each station. Please note these renderings do not represent final configuration and design, and updated images are expected at a later time.

As previously advised, I’m available should your group have specific or general questions about East Extension rail construction.

Have a nice day.

Good Afternoon

I’m writing as your community group or organization has been identified as a stakeholder to the Stage 2 Confederation Line East Extension project. The City is committed to keeping you informed as construction details become available.

Working with our project contractor East-West Connectors (EWC), we’ve prepared a public notice detailing early works currently planned throughout 2019. It is attached for your review/distribution, noting it is to be mail dropped via Canada Post to homes along the planned rail alignment between Blair and Trim.

The City has an interactive map that allows you explore Stage 2 alignments. It can be accessed by following these steps:

  1. Copy + Paste the following link into a new browser: http://maps.ottawa.ca/geoottawa/
  2. When open, select “More layers” on the top right corner
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the pop up window
  4. Select  “Rail Implementation Office”

To learn more about the project, please visit Ottawa.ca/Stage2. I will remain available as a point of contact to answer your LRT-related questions, or join you at community meetings with a project update. If you have been contacted in error, please let me know so I can adjust this contact list.

Thank you.
