The National Capital Commission (NCC) will begin work on the Hog’s Back Swing Bridge on Monday, August 12, 2019. The bridge is projected to be closed bridge for nine months. For additional information about this project and site plan, visit the NCC website.
During this project, Hog’s Back Road between Prince of Wales and Colonel By Drive will be closed to vehicle traffic. However, pedestrians and cyclists will be able to cross the canal at an accessible pathway parallel to the locks North of the bridge.
The City of Ottawa suggests the following driving detour route during this closure: Prince of Wales to Heron Road to Riverside Drive to Hog’s Back Road to Colonel By Drive. A map detailing this route, as well as pedestrian and cyclist entry points to campus may be found on the university’s Transportation Plan website.
Carleton University has taken steps to mitigate traffic congestion caused by construction projects around the city. The first step is the construction of Stadium Way that will connect Bronson Avenue and University Drive through parking lot 5 (P5), near MNP Park. Construction has already begun and will be completed this fall.
The City is planning for the extension of Raven Road to assist in the movement of bus traffic and this project is currently under design by the City of Ottawa.
We ask community members to exercise patience with one another as we cycle, walk or drive to and from campus during this construction project by the NCC.
