Traffic: Maitland 417 off-ramp closure starts July 2, cyclists' action at city hall

By Megan Gillis, Ottawa Citizen, June 26, 2019

If you’re car commuting downtown, watch out for cyclists doing a symbolic “human protected bike lane” outside city hall Wednesday morning.

They’ll be forming a human chain along painted bike lines until 9:30 a.m. on Laurier Avenue, where a cyclist died last month. Another cyclist died this week in a crash on Hunt Club Road.

The cyclists will be back for an afternoon shift there from 3:30-5:30 p.m.
