Here is a further update from my office regarding the pole relocation project Hydro Ottawa has been working on in Stittsville. As mentioned in a previous newsletter, the project involves relocating 34 hydro poles on Maple Grove Road (between Terry Fox Drive and Rosehill Avenue). The work started in May and is scheduled to continue until the end of July 2016.
As a result of this project, Maple Grove Road will be closed between Huntmar Drive and Silver Seven Road) on Saturday, June 18, 2016. Driving and parking within the area will be restricted between 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on this day to allow the contractor to conduct the work safely and efficiently. Pedestrians will also be restricted from entering the construction zone. This road closure is necessary to help Hydro Ottawa complete the project quickly and safely.
During this road closure, there will be an increased construction presence, including construction vehicles and temporary detour signs directing traffic and pedestrians away from the construction site. Only local traffic will be allowed to enter and exit the area. Once the work has been completed, the contractor will reopen Maple Grove Road to all vehicles and pedestrians.
Be assured that all residents and businesses in the affected area will receive advanced notice of this road closure and be provided with a point of contact.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Emmanuel Coffie, System Designer, who has been overseeing this project. Emmanuel can be reached by phone at 613- 913-4021 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
