Kanata Intersection Improvements Project
March Road at Carling Avenue and Herzberg Road at March Road

As part of the City of Ottawa’s initiative to increase pedestrian safety by providing pathway connectivity, the City will undertake bicycle-lane improvements on Carling Avenue east of March Road and on Herzberg Road north of March Road. Carling Avenue will be widened by 0.5m to 2m to accommodate the new bicycle lanes.

WHO:  Karson Asphalt Paving Inc. has been hired by the City of Ottawa to construct the work.

WHY:  The proposed works at Carling Avenue and March Road will provide new eastbound and westbound
bicycle lanes, which will connect to existing paved shoulders on Carling Avenue. The project will
also add a two-staged left turn bike box for cyclist heading southbound on March Road and making a
left turn onto eastbound Carling Avenue.

The proposed works at Herzberg Road and March Road will connect the existing bicycle lanes along
Herzberg Road to the upgraded March Road intersection, as well as to the existing bicycle lanes
along March Road and the multi-use pathway on the southwest side of March Road.

WHAT:  The work within the Carling Avenue and March Road intersection will be limited to new
pavement markings, new curb installation and some grading.

The work at Herzberg Road and March Road will involve new raised cycle track, upgraded traffic
signals, new sidewalk, and roadway resurfacing within the intersection. It will also include the
construction of a new retaining wall along the south side of March Road.

WHEN:  The work is to commence in October and is anticipated to take approximately ten weeks.

WHERE: The project limits for this construction are:

  • Carling Avenue – north and south side of the road, from March Road to
    approximately 400m east of  March Road.
  • Herzberg Road – east and west side of the road, from March Road
    to approximately 300m north of  March Road.
  • March Road from approximately 150m west of Herzberg Road
    to approximately 150m east of Herzberg Road.
