detourJockvale Road near the Jock River Bridge will be closed completely from 7 p.m. Friday, April 19 until 6 a.m. Monday, April 22. Traffic will be required to use either Greenbank Road or Woodroffe Avenue. Local residents will still be able to access homes and businesses in the area.

The Jockvale Road widening project is a $23.975 million project that will widen Jockvale Road to a four lane divided roadway from south of Paul Metivier Drive to Cambrian Road, including a new multi-lane roundabout at the Cambrian/Jockvale/Golflinks intersection. The project also includes the replacement of the existing Jock River Bridge with two new structures. For more information visit ottawa.ca.

The Jockvale Road widening is an Ottawa on the Move project, which advanced $340 million of capital projects to be completed from 2012 to 2014. 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.
