This is a release from the City of Ottawa:
La Machine, an Ottawa 2017 Signature Event, will take place across downtown Ottawa this weekend, from July 27 to 30. To accommodate La Machine’s giant mechanical creatures and tens of thousands of spectators, this event will involve significant and rolling traffic impacts for motorists, and intermittent disruptions for cyclists. The full list of closures is available on ottawa.ca.
The road closures will impact on-street parking in the downtown area. Temporary special event signage will be in place to inform motorists where and when stopping and parking will be prohibited. Pay & Display meters will also be covered to indicate that parking is prohibited. Signage will indicate when a tow-away zone is in effect.
By-law and Regulatory Services will issue tickets and tow vehicles that are parked in a tow-away zone. The penalty for parking in these spaces is $120.00. Owners of vehicles that are towed are also liable for impound and storage fees.
Enforcement is needed to create safe pedestrian zones for residents and visitors to enjoy the four-day street performance.
A full list of areas where stopping/parking will be prohibited is available on ottawa.ca.
City parking lots will be available but are expected to fill-up quickly. Parking at City Hall is only $2 on weekends and evenings after 6 p.m. Visitottawa.ca for more information about parking in the area.
