Notice: Trillium Pathway Phase 3 Functional Design Study (Carling Avenue to Dow’s Lake)

Dear Glebe Annex residents,

Please find enclosed below the following call for input from the City of Ottawa regarding the expansion of the Trillium Pathway across Carling Avenue and to Dow’s Lake.

**********

Online Consultation:  March 30 to April 14, 2017
Ottawa.ca/TrilliumPhase3

The City of Ottawa has initiated a functional planning study to complete the multi-use Trillium Pathway between its current southern terminus at Carling Avenue and the National Capital Commission’s pathway at Dow’s Lake. The extension to this facility is identified as a Community Connectivity project in the approved Strategic Initiatives of this term of Council (2015-18).  In addition, the design further develops the cross-town bikeway that links to the south urban community along Prince of Wales Drive, as described in the Ottawa Cycling Plan of 2013.  It further improves connectivity to the O-Train Trillium Line’s Carling Station from the south.  This project is in partnership with the National Capital Commission.  This project is also supported financially by the federal government’s Public Transit Infrastructure Fund.

The purpose of the project is to address a missing cycling link for recreational, utilitarian and commuter users at an important junction of several routes, as well as to complete the Cross-town Bikeway #6 at this location.

A recommended functional design concept is being identified, based on technical feasibility, affordability and community input.

Residents are invited to review the available project information and drawings and to provide their input:

Proposed design (plan view plus selected viewpoint) [ PDF 1.842 MB ]

Project Timing

The project is currently in the functional planning study phase which will be completed in the spring of 2017. A construction timeline will be identified after completion of detailed design.

Project Drawing

A plan view and a 3-D rendering of the proposed cycling and pedestrian facilities are shown in the provided drawing.

Proposed is an upgrade of the existing crushed-stone trail running parallel to the O-Train to an asphalt multi-use pathway (MUP) of standard 3-m width.  Between this MUP’s new endpoint at Prince of Wales Drive and the intersection with Preston Street, raised cycle tracks and improved sidewalk will be provided.  In addition, conversion of existing eastbound on-road bike lane to raised cycle track is proposed for the segment of Prince of Wales Drive immediately to the west of the O-Train Trillium Line.

Two courtesy crossings of Prince of Wales Drive with central median refuge will facilitate connections along pedestrian and cyclist desire lines while eliminating the need for cyclist dismounts.  These crossings will not be signalized.

Tell us what you think

After reviewing the above information, you are invited to give your opinion via the

Online questionnaire

FCA-FAC Transportation Master Plan: Workshop & Survey

Dear FCA members:
WORKSHOP: The City of Ottawa’s current Transportation Master Plan (TMP) is the City’s blueprint for planning, developing and operating its walking, cycling, public transit and road networks for the next two decades. It was approved in 2013, based on 2006 census information, 2011 traffic data, background reports and public consultation. It contains targets and strategies regarding walking, cycling, transit and vehicles for 2031 (to access the TMP goto http://ottawa.ca/en/city-hall/planning-and-development/official-plan-and-master-plans/transportation-master-plan ). The City originally intended to update the TMP for 2018, but now does not expect to begin the process to update the TMP until 2021.
But time does not stand still – assumptions change, new data becomes available, and a new TMP is needed. On Saturday April 8, 2017 (8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. @ Tom Brown Arena, 141 Bayview Rd.) the FCA Transportation Committee will hold a half-day workshop on building a new Transportation Master Plan for our city. Please see the attached Agenda or click on it here:

Please distribute this workshop notice to your members, and please RSVP via e-mail to alexcullen@rogers.com.
SURVEY: What should be the new Transportation Master Plan goals and strategies?
Please take 5 minutes to fill out the following survey by April 5, 2017:
Survey results will be released during the workshop to help us in planning the discussion for the event. All answers are anonymous and may be published on the FCA website following the workshop. Please do not include any personal information in the survey answers.
