The University of Ottawa has announced that there will be road closures and related detours which will impact the Sandy Hill Community.
The road closures are as a result of construction needs related to the building of the Advanced Research Complex (ARC). During the road closures, work will be conducted under street-level to connect the new building with existing service tunnels (for heating and electrical systems, etc).
The road closures are on two consecutive weekends, as follows:
- Thursday, May 2, 2013 (7:00 p.m.) to Monday, May 6, 2013 (6:00 a.m.)
- Friday, May 10, 2013 (7:00 p.m.) to Monday, May 13, 2013 (6:00 a.m.)
Location: King Edward will be closed from Somerset Street East and Templeton Street.
Detour: Traffic will be rerouted onto Henderson Avenue (southbound) and Nelson Street (northbound).
Detour and road closure signs will be installed.
The University regrets any inconvenience the road closures may cause.
