Prince of Wales Drive Coordinated Network Modifications Project:

The City of Ottawa will be beginning construction of Prince of Wales Drive, as well as the Hunt Club Road and Riverside Drive intersection starting the beginning June. The modifications will improve the asphalt roadway along Prince of Wales Drive from 480m north of Strandherd Drive to Hunt Club Road, as well as complete a number of intersection improvements to mitigate the safety and flow of vehicular, cycling and pedestrian traffic along the Prince of Wales Drive corridor. Intersection improvements generally consist of widening to lengthen existing turning or through lanes, or to create new turning or through lanes. New traffic signals will be installed at several intersection locations. Residents may expect to see utility relocation work and pre-construction activities prior to the modifications.  The Contractor is required to maintain a minimum of one lane of traffic in each direction along Prince of Wales Drive between 5am and 7pm;

Intersection modifications are:

  • Prince of Wales Drive and Merivale Road intersection;
  • Prince of Wales Drive and Amberwood Crescent intersection;
  • Prince of Wales Drive, from Blazer Avenue to Deakin Street;
  • Prince of Wales Drive and Deakin Street intersection;
  • Prince of Wales Drive, from Deakin Street to Hunt Club Road;
