The Queen Elizabeth Driveway is closed to motor vehicle traffic between Laurier Avenue and Fifth Avenue, daily from 8 am to 8 pm, until Sunday, June 28, 2020. Barricades and signage are in place to help ensure the safety of users.

This closure provides residents the opportunity to get outdoors to exercise and get some fresh air, while practising safe physical distancing. The parkway should be used as the NCC’s multi-use pathways are used, with the yellow centre line delineating direction; keep your right.

NOTICE: A section of the Queen Elizabeth Driveway between McLeod Street and the Pretoria Bridge will be open to motor vehicle traffic from Wednesday, May 27 to Friday, May 29 to detour traffic away from construction on Elgin Street. Barricades will direct pedestrians and cyclists to Rideau Canal Western Pathway.
