Public Information Centre: Permanent Closure of the Highway 417 Carling Avenue E-E On-Ramp

Dear Glebe Annex residents,

Please find enclosed the following notice of a public information centre being held by the Ministry of Transportation regarding the permanent closure of the Highway 417 Carling Avenue E-E On-Ramp.


Dear friends,

I wanted to share with you that the Ministry of Transportation (MTO) is holding a second Public Information Centre (PIC) for the proposed permanent closure of the Highway 417 Carling Avenue E-E On-Ramp (WP 4255-15-01) (on-ramp from Carling Avenue Westbound to Highway 417 Eastbound), in Ottawa. The permanent closure of the E-E On-Ramp is proposed as a means to accommodate the planned enhancement of Highway 417 and provide a standard-length merge lane for the high volume W-E On-Ramp, while maintaining access to Highway 417 Eastbound within the Carling Avenue interchange.


The second PIC will be held on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 from 4:00 pm to 8:00 pm at St. Anthony’s Banquet Hall, 523 St. Anthony Street, in Ottawa. Members of the Project Team will be available at the PIC to discuss the project and answer any questions you may have.  Following the PIC, digital copies of the PIC display materials will be posted to the project website.

Upon completion of the study, a Transportation Environmental Study Report (TESR) will be prepared and filed for a 30-day public review period. Newspaper notices will be published at that time to explain the review process and identify locations where the TESR can be reviewed.


If you are unable to attend the PIC but wish to obtain additional information, or submit comments, please feel free to contact the undersigned at the address listed below or visit the project website:
