Update on LRT Stage 2

Stage 2 preparatory work continues along the East Extension corridor, at Ottawa Road 174.

Kiewit-Eurovia-Vinci has completed significant geotechnical investigations via borehole drilling. They continue to remove some trees and vegetation (only what is required for construction) on both the north and south sides of Highway 174. They have begun the slight relocation of highway ramps and lanes at the Montreal Road interchange, most of which will occur during overnight hours as not to impact vehicular traffic during peak hours.

These activities are all required to begin station and guideway construction next year.

All construction activities are listed at https://ottawa.ca/en/planning-development-and-construction/major-projects/stage-2-light-rail-transit-project/ongoing-work.
