The City of Ottawa is undertaking construction for the Montreal Road Revitalization project from North River Road to St. Laurent Boulevard. The project also includes the reconstruction of North River Road from Selkirk Street to the North River Road cul-de-sac.

The purpose of this page is to solicit your questions on the proposed detours included in OC Transpo’s presentation on this page. The project started in mid-June 2019 with utility relocation work. Major construction works began in 2020, with anticipated project completion in late 2022. As communicated early in the project, Montreal Road will be reduced to one westbound lane between the Vanier Parkway and St. Laurent Boulevard in 2021 and 2022 requiring detours via McArthur Avenue.

During the construction work, pedestrian access to businesses will remain open at all times and residents and visitors are encouraged to continue to support Montreal Road businesses.
