Piecing together a new Cumberland Transitway won’t be as easy as the city thought.
A report published this week ahead of Wednesday’s transportation committee meeting says the city needs to find cheaper way to build a road and Transitway between the Blackburn Hamlet Bypass and Brian Coburn Boulevard.
The city estimated that section of road would cost $17.5 million, but after studying the ground conditions, staff realized it would actually cost about $70 million. The plan has been to build this section of road between 2020 and 2025.http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/city-goes-back-to-the-drawing-board-on-blackburn-road-transit-link
