Two-year Elgin Street construction endorsed by city transportation committee
Ottawa Citizen

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, May 3, 2017

Ottawa council’s transportation committee on Wednesday approved a trimmed-down Elgin Street with wider sidewalks and a significant decrease in the speed limit when the commercial strip reopens after construction.

There were only three deputations and all were generally in favour of the plan proposed by transportation staff, even though the city was challenged to please all stakeholders.

Two business owners made deputations and both seemed satisfied that the city will make sure construction is finished as quickly as possible.
