31 Oct Bank Street Improvements
Thank you to all residents that attended the public information session to review the preliminary plans for a new and improved segment of Bank Street from Riverside Drive to Ledbury Avenue. Below you will find copies of the Bank Street design for review. Please share any comments, suggestions, or general feedback on the proposed design with me at Riley.Brockington@Ottawa.ca and I will share them with the project team as part of the review phase.
In July 2017, the City of Ottawa selected the preferred design of a new and improved segment of Bank Street from Riverside Drive to Ledbury Avenue. The preferred design is aligned with the complete streets components that the City is shifting towards. The new design through the corridor will feature new sidewalks, a landscaped boulevard, a cycle track, and a buffer area between the roadway on both sides of Bank Street. Two motor vehicle lanes will be kept in each direction with a new depressed median along most of the roadway, removing the two-way turn lane design that is currently on Bank Street. Raised medians will be located closer to the intersections.
