From Councillor Hobbs:
Between March 5,2012 and June 1, 2012, Merivale Road will be closed between Island Park Drive and approximately 100 m south of the Highway 417 overpass structure. The road closure is required to allow for the construction of the Cave Creek Collector and for the reconstruction of Merivale Road under the Highway 417 overpass structure.
Traffic disruptions will be kept to a minimum and residents are reminded to use extra caution and follow signs around the construction zone.
There will continue to be two lanes of traffic in each direction on Merivale Road between Carling Avenue and the Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre entrance, but north exit to Island Park Drive will not be possible. The Island Park Drive right turn lane to Merivale Road will also be closed.
Access to all shopping malls and businesses in the area will be maintained, and through lanes and turning lanes at the Carling Avenue and Merivale Road intersection will also be maintained.
