Transportation committee approves LRT-era changes to Albert and Slater streets

By Jon Willing, Ottawa Citizen, April 4, 2018

Council’s transportation committee on Wednesday approved a redesign plan for two downtown streets as the city prepares to reduce the number of buses when the Confederation Line opens.

The bus-only lanes on Albert and Slater streets won’t be necessary when the LRT line is running through the tunnel under Queen Street in November. The number of buses cutting through the downtown will be reduced by half, and more in some locations.
