The Region will be making improvements on Ottawa Street between Fischer-Hallman Road and International Place. The Region has decided to reconsider its plans for this section of Ottawa Street to include multi-use trails. This would result in about 5.5 kilometres of continuous multi-use trails all the way along Ottawa Street from Homer Watson Boulevard to Trussler Road.

Adding multi-use trails to this section of Ottawa Street would require the removal of the existing sidewalks and the removal and replacement of the existing curbs and gutters. With this additional work and the previously planned work, the Project Team has now identified the need for the following repairs and upgrades on Ottawa Street from Fischer-Hallman Road to International Place in Kitchener.

  • Complete replacement of the deteriorated pavement structure.
  • Replace concrete curb and gutter to remove existing cycling lane and reduce the road cross-section.
  • Install a new 3.0m wide multi-use trail on both sides of Ottawa Street from Fischer-Hallman Road to International Place and connect to existing multi-use trails.
  • Upsize the existing 450mm diameter watermain to a 600mm diameter watermain, as well as removal of the existing 450mm watermain.
  • Add a new 150mm diameter local watermain to provide services previously connected to the 450mm diameter watermain.
  • Reconstruct the intersections at International Place and Sunrise Centre entrance, including installation of Detectable Warning Plates to allow barrier-free access at all sidewalk ramp and road crossing locations.

The public is invited to review the improvements being considered for this project, ask Region of Waterloo staff questions, and provide input regarding the design of the improvements being considered.

Please refer to the Document Library to read the Information Package and review drawings showing the Preferred Design Concept.

Feedback can be provided online through the survey below until June 19, 2020. All members of the public that would like project updates please provide your email address on the subscribe button.
