Kanata LRT Planning and EA Study – Public Open House
June 5, 2017 @ 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm
The City of Ottawa has initiated this Planning and Environmental Assessment (EA) study to develop a Recommended Plan to extend Light Rail Transit (LRT) from Moodie Drive to Kanata. This Planning and EA Study will define a corridor for the future expansion of the City’s LRT network to Kanata. Extending LRT to Kanata is identified in the Ultimate Network in the City’s 2013 Transportation Master Plan (TMP).
The study will examine LRT corridor options for a broader area to the north and south of Highway 417. The outcome will be a Recommended Plan that identifies the LRT corridor, station locations, and supporting facilities, and determines an implementation strategy based on ridership and affordability.
The EA portion of the study will be undertaken in accordance with the Transit Project Assessment Process (TPAP) as prescribed in Ontario Regulation 231/08, Transit Projects. The City must consider alternative corridors and designs for the project, undertake public and agency consultation, assess the potential environmental effects of the Recommended Plan and identify measures to mitigate any such impacts.
Information on the Kanata LRT Planning and EA Study is available at www.ottawa.ca/KanataLRT or www.Ottawa.ca/kanatatlr. Comments received will be collected under TPAP, and with the exception of personal information, will become part of the public record.
Accessibility is an important consideration for the City of Ottawa. If you require special accommodation, please call or email the project manager below before the event.
