Council briefs: Albert-Slater redesign approved, space granted for new landfill

By David Reevely, Ottawa Citizen, April 11, 2018

Ottawa will rebuild Albert and Slater streets after the new light-rail line opens, aiming to make them more pleasant for pedestrians and cyclists after hundreds of buses no longer ply the east-west downtown arteries.

City council approved detailed plans Wednesday that include bike tracks, wider sidewalks, planters, benches and trees. The work should start in 2019 and will change both streets end to end, from LeBreton Flats to the Mackenzie King Bridge outside the Rideau Centre.
