The eastbound Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway between Parkdale Avenue and Nepean Bay will be closed from June to November 2022. The westbound lanes will remain open to motor vehicle traffic and become bidirectional.
The Parkdale Avenue ramps will be closed from May 16 to June 20, but access for pedestrians and cyclists will remain open. During Weekend Bikedays, this section will be open exclusively for active use.
This closure is required as part of Public Services and Procurement Canada’s Energy Services Acquisition Program to modernize the district energy systems in the National Capital Region. Workers will be installing water pipes along the parkway.
The National Capital Commission (NCC) urges the public to exercise caution, respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage on-site.
