Final Paving of Jockvale and Cambrian Roads Underway

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.

Realigned Greenbank Road and Transitway Extension Public Open House – June 11

What: Realigned Greenbank Road and Southwest Transitway Extension (South Of Cambrian Road) Public Open House
When: Tuesday, June 11, 2013, 5-8pm (Presentation at 6pm)
Where: Stonebridge Golf & Country Club, 68 Hawktree Ridge

The City of Ottawa is carrying out a study to develop a recommended plan for the southerly extension of Realigned Greenbank Road and the Southwest Transitway from their planned terminus at Cambrian Road. The study will examine the need to extend either or both facilities as far south as Bankfield Road. The intent of the project is to accommodate projected transportation demand (all modes) arising from the developing community of Barrhaven South, and to accommodate travel demand between Barrhaven South and the Village of Manotick. This study is being planned under Schedule "C" of the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (October 2000, as amended in 2007), which is approved under the Ontario Environmental Assessment Act.

New Jockvale Road Bridge opens Friday, June 7

On Friday, June 7, the City of Ottawa will open a new bridge on Jockvale Road, the first of two bridges set to replace the existing two-way bridge that crosses the Jock River, just north of the Stonebridge community. Traffic on Jockvale Road will be diverted to the new bridge which will be temporarily open to two-way traffic until second bridge is completed this fall.

The bridge construction is part of a larger project which includes the widening of Jockvale Road to a four-lane urban divided roadway from Paul Metivier Drive to Cambrian Road and the installation of a new multi-lane roundabout at the Cambrian/Jockvale/Golflinks intersection. The City has also begun reconstruction of Cambrian Road from Jockvale to Greenbank Road, which includes improved street lighting and signage, and the installation of new storm sewers, curbs and sidewalks.

The Jockvale Bridge Project is a $23.9 million project and part of Ottawa on the Move, 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.

Update: Extension of Half Moon Bay Road to Greenbank Road

An update from Jan Harder.

Here is a brief construction update on the extension of Half Moon Bay Road to Greenbank Road:

  1. The underground works have been completed.
  2. City staff expect the asphalt to be placed by the end of next week (Oct 26th), pending weather.
  3. The City is responsible for the asphalt line painting and traffic control signs.  The appropriate City Department is aware of this project and have estimated that this work can occur within 4 weeks after asphalt (by Nov 23rd).
  4. There are a few street lights that need to be installed.  The design has been approved by the City and it's expected the formal approval letter to allow the installation from the City next week.
  5. It's anticipated the street lights will be installed by November 23rd.
  6. Once the street lights are installed it typically takes Hydro Ottawa two-weeks to activate them.
  7. It is staff's opinion that the city does not open the road until the street lights have been activated and the traffic control signs and painting are in place for safety.
  8. Based on the above schedule it's anticipated the road will be complete to be opened by December 7th.
  9. The City's Street Light Department and Hydro Ottawa will be engaged to see if the Street Light activation can be advanced further.
