Preliminary Design and Environmental Assessment Study for the Rehabilitation / Replacement of Ottawa Queensway Mid-town Bridges from Holland Avenue to O’Connor Street (G.W.P. 4075-11-00) – Notice of Submission of Transportation Environmental Study

May 2, 2016

 

To Whom This May Concern,

Re:         Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) – Preliminary Design and Environmental Assessment Study for the Rehabilitation / Replacement of Ottawa Queensway Mid-town Bridges from Holland Avenue to O’Connor Street (G.W.P. 4075-11-00) – Notice of Submission of Transportation Environmental Study Report 

THE STUDY – The Ontario Ministry of Transportation (MTO) has retained Morrison Hershfield Limited (MH) to undertake a preliminary design and environmental assessment study for the rehabilitation and / or replacement of twenty-three bridges (twelve locations) on Highway 417 (Ottawa Queensway) from Holland Avenue to O’Connor Street, in the City of Ottawa. This study determined the appropriate strategy for the rehabilitation or replacement of the bridges. The study areas are shown below.

Several alternatives were reviewed for each bridge including structural and construction staging options in order to minimize disruption to the Queensway. In addition, engineering, environmental, and property requirements have been established, along with the identification of mitigation measures to reduce or negate short and long term residual effects. Technically Preferred Alternatives have been identified for all twenty-three bridges and the recommendation is for rehabilitation of bridges at Holland, Parkdale, Fairmont, Bayswater, Bank and O’Connor and replacement of bridges at the CPR/O-Train, Preston, Rochester, Booth, Bronson and Percy. Full closures of the Queensway will be required for the bridge replacements for up to 82 hours at a time over a long weekend with Queensway traffic detoured to municipal streets including: Booth Street, Bronson Avenue, Carling Avenue, Catherine Street, Chamberlain Avenue, Gladstone Avenue, Kent Street, Somerset Street, Riverside Drive and Rochester Street. Other localized lane reductions, closures and detours will be required for general traffic, transit, cyclists and pedestrians.

 

THE PROCESS – This Study was completed in accordance with the Class Environmental Assessment for Provincial Transportation Facilities (2000)process for a Group “B” project. External agency and public consultation took place throughout the study. As required, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) has been prepared which includes a summary of the undertaking, consultation process, the existing environmental issues, alternatives evaluation, and the mitigation measures that have been developed to address environmental concerns. The public is encouraged to review this report. It will be available from Wednesday, May 4, 2016 until Wednesday, June 8, 2016 at the following locations:
