Future Park and Rides to service Stittsville

I have received inquiries from residents regarding future Park and Ride (P&R) sites and am also sharing this with the broader community as I am sure other residents are also interested in this information.  I frequently hear from residents in Stittsville that the P&Rs currently available do not meet the needs of Stittsville residents.

 

I have continued to work with OC Transpo and the City’s Transportation Department to provide more P&R options to residents, such as the Canadian Tire Place Park and Ride partnership providing 100 spaces (can be expanded as needed) for commuters to use.  In addition, the City recently upgrade the Carp Road Park and Ride which provided approximately 35 more parking spaces. For more information on the current park and rides available to residents please visit the OC Transpo website here.

 

In the Fernbank Community Design Plan there are 3 Transit stations including park and rides identified which would service Stittsville and the surroundings area.  In the demonstration plan you can see the locations of these noted as a ‘T’, you can view the plan here .

 

Below is additional information on each site.  Please note that Transportation staff have provide these timelines as estimates and that there is still the potential that these timelines will change in the future.

 

  • Hazeldean / Robert Grant (Highest Priority)
    • Located at the future intersection of Hazeldean Road and Robert Grant Avenue.  Park and Ride is located both north and south of Hazeldean Road. Area of land north of Hazeldean Road is between the Shops of Fairwinds Plaza (Toys R Us) and the Grant Plaza (Lowes).
    • 325 spaces to the north, and 325 spaces to the south
    • Subject to affordability this could be funded sometime in the 2021-2022 timeframe.
    • Current development application underway for the south portion at 5618 Hazeldean Road. I am working to explore any potential partnership opportunities with the developer of this site and the Transportation and Planning Department to bring this project forward to an earlier timeline.

 

  • Abbott Street /Robert Grant
    • Southeast corner of the intersection and south of the Trans Canada Trail
    • 250 spaces
    • Timing of construction will depend on funding/affordability.  It is not within the current 3-yr forecast window, and would likely be around 2024.

 

  • Fernbank Road / Robert Grant
    • Northeast corner of this intersection
    • 200 spaces
    • Timing of construction will depend on funding/affordability.  It is not within the current 3-yr forecast window, and would likely be around 2024.
