Mainstreeter » Elgin and Hawthorne: You Could Be Next! City considers turning portions into complete streets

By Rob Barnes, Mainstreeter, February 2017

Elgin Street and Hawthorne Avenue will soon become friendlier to cyclists and pedestrians, City of Ottawa officials told people at a public consultation last month.

The consultation unveiled plans for Elgin Street south of Lisgar Street, and Hawthorne Avenue between Isabella and Main streets. Both Elgin and Hawthorne will be renewed as part of the city’s ongoing maintenance schedule for all city streets.

Through the renewal process, Elgin and Hawthorne could become ‘complete streets’ – a format used in Main Street reconstruction to make the roadway easier to use for a wider range of pedestrians, cyclists and motorists.
