Beginning in late September 2023, the City of Ottawa will begin constructing a pedestrian crossover in Rideau-Rockcliffe Ward 13.
What: Pedestrian crossovers are designated areas that allow pedestrians to safely cross the road, where vehicles must yield to pedestrians when crossing. Pedestrian crossovers (PXOs) are identified by specific signs and pavement markings. In some cases, but not always, they may also have pedestrian activated flashing beacons. More information on PXOs is available at this link.
Why: This work is required to improve mobility and safety for pedestrians.
When: This work is scheduled to begin in late September 2023 and is anticipated to be completed by mid-October 2023. It is anticipated that the contractor will be deploying to North River Road the week of Sept. 25.
Where: The PXO will be constructed on the north leg of the North River Road/Stevens Avenue intersection. Work will involve removal and replacement of sections of sidewalk along North River Road, asphalt and landscaping reinstatement, signs and pavement markings.
Who: The City of Ottawa has retained the contractor, Mopri Construction, to complete the work.
