What
Long-term closure, Byron Avenue, Sherbourne Road and Redwood Avenue.

When
As early as Monday, October 24 until end of November 2022.

Anticipated Impacts
Motorists travelling eastbound on Byron Avenue will have to turn right on to Sherbourne Road. Motorists travelling westbound on Byron Avenue will have to turn left on to Redwood Avenue.

Motorists should adhere to detours, traffic control signage, posted speed limits, allow for added travel time and use extra caution when moving through active construction corridors as traffic patterns change.

Pedestrians and cyclists should use extra caution and adhere to posted signage to ensure safety.

The construction work outlined in this notice is subject to change. Work may be delayed or extended due to weather or other unforeseen circumstances.

Accessibility is an important consideration for the Stage 2 LRT project. The Stage 2 team makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact stage2@ottawa.ca.

The safety of the public and workers is paramount, and we thank you for your patience during construction.
