Consultation has concluded.

Project Description

The City of Ottawa invites you to provide your comments on a new active transportation connection from the intersection of Richmond Road and Golden Avenue to Dominion Avenue. The proposed project includes a 3.0 m wide paved multi-use pathway (MUP) through Ottawa Community Housing (OCH) lands at 445 Richmond Road, subject to final property agreements with OCH. The MUP provides direct access to the Kichi Sibi LRT Station under construction as well as Crosstown Bikeway #2 along Scott Street. The project also includes modifications to the intersection of Richmond Road and Golden Avenue to provide a cycling crossing and to reduce crossing distances for pedestrians. This will make it safer and easier for people on foot and bike to access the new MUP from Richmond Road and neighbourhoods to the south.

Location and project details can be viewed by clicking on the link at the upper right side of the screen.

Summary of Impacts

  • An eastbound cycle track will be added to Richmond Road for 135 m on the approach to Golden Avenue. A westbound cycle track and protected bike lane will be added to Richmond Road for 100 m on the egress from Golden Avenue. The eastbound right turn lane is expected to be shortened to accommodate the changes.
  • The eastbound bus stop on Richmond Road is expected to move to the east side of the Golden Avenue intersection. Some on-street parking on the south side of Richmond Road will need to be relocated from the east side to the west side of Golden Avenue to accommodate this change.
  • Up to eight trees may be removed. Any impacted trees will be replaced or compensated in accordance with the Tree Protection Bylaw.
  •  The Richmond Road/Golden Avenue intersection will receive a bidirectional crossride on the west side, curb extensions, widened sidewalk space and shortened crosswalks.

Project Timing

Once functional planning is complete, this project will be handed over to the City’s Infrastructure Services Department to complete the detailed design and to develop an implementation strategy. Implementation timelines are still to be determined, with the possibility of construction in 2024 and/or 2025.
