This is a release from the City of Ottawa:
Transportation Committee today approved a Statement of Work for a study to find an alternative route for the Blackburn Hamlet Bypass and the Cumberland Transitway. The existing approved corridor is in an area of unsuitable soil that would make construction unaffordable.
Transportation Committee also approved the functional design of the proposed Baseline Road Bus Rapid Transit Corridor, an important piece of the City’s Transportation Master Plan that will provide transit customers with a reliable and quick east-west commute that avoids downtown.
The Baseline Road Bus Rapid Transit Corridor will expand and connect Ottawa’s existing and planned Transitway and O-Train network. The corridor extends nearly 14 kilometres between Bayshore Station and Heron Station along Holly Acres Road, Richmond Road, Baseline Road and Heron Road.
Also at Transportation Committee today, the 2016 Cleaning the Capital Ward Awards were given to the Rideau Goulbourn community for both the spring and fall competitions among City Wards.
