Geotechnical Investigation at Huntmar Drive and Maple Grove

Beginning in early December, the City of Ottawa will undertake survey work and a geotechnical investigation in the Fairwinds neighbourhood. This work is being done to update record information of the intersection configuration and determine existing underground soil conditions. This information will support the reconstruction design of the Huntmar Drive and Maple Grove Road intersection.


This is exciting news for the community as I am hopeful that a potential reconstruction of this intersection will be of benefit from the community based on comments received from residents.


Survey and geotechnical investigation work will take place along Huntmar Drive from Par-la-Ville Circle to Harmattan Avenue, and on Maple Grove Road from Leveche Way to Rosehill Avenue.


The geotechnical investigation will involve the drilling of boreholes and obtaining soil samples for testing and determining sewer construction requirements and the roadway structure materials.


The survey work and geotechnical investigation will begin early December 2017 and should take approximately 1-2 weeks.


The Contractor is obligated to provide 24-hour notification of temporary loss of access or egress. In the event that access to your driveway is restricted due to construction activities, a Temporary On-Street Parking Permit (orange form) will be distributed to permit on-street parking within two blocks of your residence.


Nearby residents will be receiving hand-delivered letters regarding this work to their homes as of tomorrow, December 1st.


Dates and timelines regarding any potential changes as a result of this survey will be shared in my electronic newsletter when I receive them.
