Councillor Stephen Blais, Chair of the City’s Transportation Committee and Mayor Jim Watson along with representatives from the Ottawa Police Service (OPS), Safer Roads Ottawa and the Consortium de transport scolaire d’Ottawa (CTSO), launched the permanent school bus stop-arm camera program.
The City of Ottawa is prepared for potential localized flooding in anticipation of the heavy rain in this weekend’s forecast. The City’s Emergency Operations Centre is in Situational Awareness and staff continue to monitor conditions in communities that have experienced flooding in the past.
City staff have developed a plan that would change the operation of the traffic signal from current operation where vehicles turn left on a green ball to one where vehicles can only turn left with a left turn arrow.
Joggers, cyclists, in-line skaters, dog walkers and folks out for an evening stroll will soon be able to choose it to get from Innes Road to the southern edge of Ottawa’s urban boundary without stepping foot on a busy arterial road.
