4 things could impact Ottawa traffic today


Good morning commuters!

Two days of maintenance begins today on the Alexandra Bridge! Wait, what? Wasn't it just closed at times for months and months?

Well, regardless, there will be issues on the boardwalk during the day and lane closures at night. Perhaps this high-maintenance bridge is beginning to affect your relationship.

On Sunday, Heathwood Gate closed and will stay closed until Sunday at Prince of Wales Drive to allow for road reconstruction work. During the closure, residents can access the community via the intersection of Waterbridge and Prince of Wales drives.

In Orléans, watermain repairs will affect St-Joseph Boulevard between St-Pierre Street and Place d'Orléans from now until July 31.

Both westbound lanes will close, but traffic will be maintained on the eastbound lanes: one lane in each direction. Due to the same work, Maisonneuve Street will be closed with no exit to St-Joseph Boulevard Wednesday and Thursday. Signed detours will be in place.

OC Transpo's O-Train Trillium Line service is now temporarily replaced by Route 107 bus service until June 30 to complete planned maintenance activities.

Have a great day!
