The final paving of Jockvale Road will begin today. The work will occur on Jockvale Road from Riverstone Drive to Cambrian Road, and Cambrian Road from Jockvale Road to Greenbank Road, including the newly constructed two-lane roundabout.

No paving work will begin prior to 9 a.m. to avoid disruption to commuters during peak periods. No paving work will occur on Cambrian Road, between Greenbank Road and Kilbernie/Tucana Road until after 4 p.m. to mitigate any disruptions to the local school.

During the paving of the Jockvale roundabout, traffic will be controlled with the use of flag persons and police, and paving of the roundabout will not start until 9 a.m. All paving work is expected to be completed by September 6, 2013, weather permitting.

One lane of traffic in each direction will be maintained on Jockvale Road and on Cambrian Road at all times. Motorists can expect delays as there will be lane closures implemented to complete this work.

The Jockvale Road Widening is a $23.975 million project that will see Jockvale Road go from two to four lanes and will see new storm sewers, catch basins, roundabouts and two new bridges over the Jock River built. For more information, visit

This construction is an Ottawa on the Move project. Ottawa on the Move is about keeping our community and economy moving forward through strategic investments in a number of transportation, water, and sewer projects to build a better city and create jobs.
