Everything you need to know about the Elgin Street renewal in 2019 — and beyond

By Taylor Blewett, Ottawa Citizen, January 7, 2018

(...)The completed project is slated to transform 16 blocks between Gloucester and Isabella Streets with wider sidewalks, infrastructure upgrades and streetscaping, among other changes. But in the meantime, it’s going to seriously disrupt traffic in the area.

(...)The changes will include wider sidewalks that conform to accessibility standards, flexible parking spaces that can also be used for streetside restaurant patios, public art, bicycle racks and streetscape elements such as tree planting and seating areas.

(...)Pedestrians, Cyclists, Transit

For pedestrians, access to both sides of Elgin Street will be maintained at all times, either though a sidewalk or pedestrian clearway alongside building facades or down the centre of the street.

For cyclists, there will be a signed detour route.
