When:             The work is tentatively planned to begin in late September 2016. Final landscaping and reinstatement will be completed by early October 2016.

The City of Ottawa Noise By-law (2004-253) allows construction activity to occur weekdays between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m.  On Saturdays, work is permitted between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. while Sunday and Statutory Holiday work is allowed between 9 a.m. and 10 p.m.  The contractor has advised the City that usual construction hours will be weekdays from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.  This will be modified as needed, for example if weather affects the schedule, or if conditions change.  Please check the City website for updates to the status of this project.

Where:            Work will occur near the following locations:

  • 125 Bourbon Street
  • 131 Bourbon Street

Every effort is being made to reduce the duration of the construction impacts in your community.


Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. The City makes every effort to provide access through and around construction sites. If you require special accommodation, please contact the On-Site Inspector or the Contractor’s representative.

On-Street Parking and Traffic

No changes to on-street parking policies are anticipated. The Contractor is required to ensure that homeowners have access to their properties.  In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be issued by the On-Site Inspector to authorize on-street parking within a few blocks of your residence. Temporary lane reductions along Bourbon Street may be required.

Construction Disruptions

Goldie Mohr Limited is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until it is entirely complete in 2016.  They will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the everyday life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the operation of the work, such as delays when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration.  We would like to thank you for your patience and co-operation.

Impact on the Right-of-Way and Adjacent Private Properties

You may feel vibrations at your home or business due to the use of the heavy equipment needed to complete this work.  This is quite common and not usually a problem.

Pre-Construction Survey

Goldie Mohr Limited is assuming full responsibility for the construction work until the construction project is entirely completed.

The Contractor is required by the City to carry liability insurance before any work may proceed.  You may be asked by the Contractor’s insurance agent for permission to survey your property before the work commences, as Contractors typically conduct pre-construction inspections to document existing conditions for their own purposes.  It is to your benefit to allow the inspection to be conducted on your property, as it may assist with establishing the impact, if any, that construction has had at your property after the work is complete.  In addition, you may wish to complete your own survey of pre-construction conditions on your property.  Your survey should include photographs.
