Richmond at Churchill Location
WHO:           The Contractor, TBD., will perform the construction work for the City of Ottawa.
WHY:            The purpose of this project is to enhance pedestrian safety and accessibility and to minimize conflicts within the intersection. Transit priority measures are also being implemented as part of the work.
WHAT:         The construction work will consist of all new sidewalks and traffic signals in conformance with Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act (AODA) standards in each quadrant of the intersection.

The existing bus bay on the north side of Richmond Road will be removed and the impacted parking spaces near the existing bus stop location will be relocated just west of the existing bus stop. The Contractor will be expected to stage work to maintain access to buildings as work is completed.
WHEN:         The construction is planned to commence at the end of May, early June 2018 and will be completed by end of August 2018.
