Today, the National Capital Commission (NCC) revealed its plans to construct a new pathway through LeBreton Flats in 2021, creating connections between the Capital Pathway along the Ottawa River and the Pimisi and Bayview O-Train stations.
Benefiting from consultations with the public and local stakeholders, these new multi-use pathway connections will feature two segments totalling 1 kilometre. They will provide more connections through LeBreton Flats from the O-Train stations, and connect to the Ottawa River Pathway via a newly reconstructed underpass under the Sir John A. Macdonald Parkway.
“The NCC is excited to construct these pathways later this year, since they’ll help bring people back into LeBreton Flats. By making LeBreton a universally accessible, transit-oriented, active-mode neighbourhood, these pathways will enhance mobility for current and future residents and visitors,” said NCC CEO, Tobi Nussbaum.
Starting tomorrow, and continuing until February 12, the public is invited to provide feedback into this project via an online questionnaire.
The Building LeBreton project team also updated the Board of Directors on other initiatives under way during today’s public meeting, including the request for qualifications for the Library Parcel development and the completion of the LeBreton Flats Master Concept Plan.
