This is a release from the City of Ottawa:
Rideau Street between Sussex Drive and Dalhousie Street will be closed nightly from 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. until the beginning of December. The closures are necessary to accommodate construction on the O-Train Confederation Line project.
All vehicular traffic will be prohibited on Rideau Street in the designated area during the scheduled closures. Businesses will remain open with street level pedestrian access as usual. A detour will be put in place for taxis and delivery vehicles.
During the closures, OC Transpo buses serving the Rideau Centre will be rerouted to the MacKenzie King Bridge. From October 3 to 11, a free OC Transpo shuttle service will be offered between the ByWard Market and the Mackenzie King Bridge with various pick-up locations. Shuttle services will operate from Monday to Wednesday between midnight and 6 a.m., and from Thursday to Saturday between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.
Starting October 11, the Rideau Centre will allow transit customers access to the Centre through the Frieman entrance on Rideau Street to the bus stops at the Mackenzie King Bridge. As of October 13, and until the end of the Rideau Street closures, the free OC Transpo shuttle service will run Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays every 10 minutes between 10 p.m. and 3 a.m.
