A section of Rideau Canal Eastern Pathway could be temporarily closed between Heron Road and Hog’s Back Road from Monday, May 17, 2021 to late fall 2021. This temporary closure will allow the installation of posts, lights and wiring to rehabilitate the electrical system near the pathway which has reached the end of its lifecycle.
This project is part of the Budget 2020 infrastructure investment to address assets with the most critical health and safety issues.
Signage and flag persons will be on site to control circulation on the pathway when necessary. Most of the work will be done beside the pathway.
The National Capital Commission (NCC) urge users to exercise caution, respect work crews and equipment, and obey flag persons and signage at the site.
