EMC news -Community members and city staff were out in full force to commemmorate the Bridlewood roundabout on May 27.
Kanata South Coun. Allan Hubley was joined by Mayor Jim Watson, Mary Jarvis of Urbandale, Gillian Sullivan of the Bridlewood Community Association, and Deborah Mohr-Caldwell from Goldie Mohr Ltd. to unveil a plaque recognizing everyone who helped with the construction of the roundabout on Stonehaven Drive.
“This traffic solution was implemented to make travel along Stonehaven more efficient and safer,” said Hubley in a press release.
MAKE YARD WORK
Urbandale fronted the $1 million for the construction of the new intersection in 2012 and the city is paying back the amount, interest free.
“By replacing a four-way-stop intersection, the roundabout was a better approach to keeping traffic moving, and to handle the vehicle volume coming from four different directions,” said Hubley. “We have received great feedback from the community on the roundabout.”
Watson said it was about time Bridlewood had an answer to its traffic woes.
“The traffic problems at this intersection had gone unresolved for years, but by combining projects and the help of a front ending agreement, we have implemented a solution that is both safe and efficient,” said Watson in a press release.
There’s a multi-million dollar expansion of the bike paths around the Ottawa River in the works – one that not many people know about.
The 1.2 kilometre extension from the Ottawa River along the O-Train tracks to Young Street (just south of the Queensway) will be finished in a few weeks at a cost of over $3 million.
As you’ve no doubt heard by now, the OCA has committed to raise $50,000 annually for the next five years in support of the Ottawa Regional Cancer Foundation (ORCF). The money will be used to enable the foundation to buy one new endoscope each year for the Queensway-Carleton Hospital’s new Digital Imaging Centre.
Through March, OCA asked its members to pledge money for this important cause, and they responded in spades. In the span of a few weeks, members contributed $38,275. Thanks to everyone who participated, and please look for more opportunities to give during the OCA’s Chairman’s Cup golf tournament in September.

At its annual general meeting on April 6, the National Capital Heavy Construction Association (NCHCA) unveiled its draft strategic plan. The document, which should be finalized this month, describes a new mission for the NCHCA and sets out discrete objectives that will guide the association’s activities throughout the next five years. “We wanted the document to help us answer three important questions,” says incoming president Deborah Mohr-Caldwell. “One, where are we now? Two, where do we want to be? Three, how will we get to where we want to be?”
In revising its mission statement, the association expanded its role from simply representing member firms to promoting the role of the industry in the construction and maintenance of sustainable infrastructure. Of this expanded approach, Mohr-Caldwell says that the association wants to do more to help all levels of government understand that repairing existing road and sewer infrastructure is as important—if not more so—as building new assets.
“The infrastructure stimulus program was important to this industry and to our members in particular,” she says. “But governments need to be aware that these kinds of funding programs must continue and even grow. When two watermains under Hunt Club Road fail in the span of a year, I can’t help but feel that infrastructure repair and maintenance is sometimes overlooked.”
