A section of Colonel By Drive, between Hawthorne and Daly avenues, will be closed to motorists on Sunday, April 14, 2019, from 6:30 am to 2 pm, to remove a Rideau Canal Skateway skate rental trailer and a concession.
In addition, in the afternoon, from 2 pm to 5 pm, the northbound lane of the Queen Elizabeth Driveway at Fifth Avenue will be reduced, as needed, over a distance of 100 metres to remove another skate rental trailer. Flag persons will control motorists and the traffic lights at the intersection to facilitate this work.
Some sections of the Rideau Canal pathways may be closed for a short period during the removal of these facilities. Users must comply with the flag persons’ directions, and proceed along designated detours.
The National Capital Commission urges motorists, cyclists and pedestrians to exercise caution and to respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage and flag persons at the site.
