Another major road project planned on a central commercial strip would reduce the number of vehicle lanes, install cycling infrastructure and remove some on-street parking spots.
The Quartier Vanier BIA is worried about potentially losing 25 on-street parking spaces in the area after Montreal Road is torn up and put back together with a new design.
“For our small mom-and-pop shops, that’s a big deal,” executive director Jamie Kwong said.
“Parking is always an issue. It’s about uprooting their current client base and how they access their business. This might be the straw on the small businesses’ back that breaks them.”http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/another-big-road-project-would-decrease-parking-in-vanier-add-cycle-track
