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.

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

Geoheritage Day at the Cardinal Creek Karst – Saturday, September 28 2019, from 10:00am to 3:00pm
geoday

The CCCA is pleased to partner with Carleton University Earth Sciences Department and the Ottawa-Gatineau Geoheritage Project to present the 11th Annual Geoheritage Day event at the Cardinal Creek Karst on Saturday, September 28 from 10 am to 3 pm. Knowledgeable volunteers will be on site to explain the interesting geological features of the Cardinal Creek Karst, an underground cave system that exists in our own neighbourhood!

There will be 7 other sites across Ottawa and Gatineau highlighting fascinating geological features in those areas.

Please join us on Saturday, September 28 at the opening of the Karst at the eastern-most end of Watters Road, just after the bridge where the pavement turns to a pebbled road.

If you have any questions, please email president@cardinalcreek.com

Check out the Karst on our website at http://cardinalcreek.org/karst/ and come meet us.

L’ACCC est heureuse de s’associer au Département des sciences de la Terre de l’Université Carleton et au Projet de géopatrimoine d’Ottawa-Gatineau pour présenter la 11e Journée annuelle du patrimoine géologique au Cardinal Creek Karst, le samedi 28 septembre, de 10h à 15h. Des bénévoles bien informés seront sur place pour expliquer les caractéristiques géologiques intéressantes du karst de Cardinal Creek, un réseau de grottes souterraines qui existe dans notre propre quartier !

Il y aura 7 autres sites à travers Ottawa et Gatineau qui mettront en valeur les caractéristiques géologiques fascinantes de ces régions pour cet événement.

Veuillez vous joindre à nous le samedi 28 septembre à l’ouverture du Karst à l’extrémité est du chemin Watters, juste après le pont où le trottoir se transforme en une route de gravier.

Si vous avez des questions, veuillez envoyer un courriel à president@cardinalcreek.com

Jetez un coup d’œil au Karst sur notre site Web à http://www.cardinalcreek.org/karst et venez nous rencontrer!
