The city isn’t guaranteeing that the intersection of Rideau Street and Sussex Avenue will reopen before North American leaders descend on Ottawa next week for a meeting with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Closed for more than two weeks after a massive sinkhole opened up on Rideau Street, just to the east of the intersection, the area has been abuzz with round-the-clock activity as workers repair damaged infrastructure and utilities, and finish filling in the five-metre-deep hole. Service has been restored to all affected businesses.
