The scope of this roadway modification project for the City of Ottawa involved the widening of Hunt Club Road, from Bank Street to the Airport Parkway, to implement bus and cycling lanes essentially completing a missing link in the cycling network along Hunt Club Road. McIntosh Perry completed a roadway improvement design, including sight lines and widening, transit way and cycling lanes designs, improvement in safety program which addressed several issues including Transpo (Ottawa Transit bus network) signage, existing roadside safety measures, bicycle lanes and sidewalks. This assignment required evaluation and comparison of several traffic, transit and cycling options to be integrated into the project.
McIntosh Perry was the Prime Consultant responsible for reviewing the feasibility of several road options, completing technical studies, designing widening and intersection improvements, landscape design, preparing tender documentation, contract administration and inspection. This project had a high level of complexity due to the constraints of widening a roadway within a congested arterial road. This section of Hunt Club road is identified as a Transit Priority Corridor and handles some of the highest passenger and bus volumes in the City of Ottawa outside of the downtown core. Additionally, Hunt Club Road is an integral part of the city-wide cycling route, connecting cyclists to the Sawmill Creek pathway and the cycling/pedestrian bridge over the Airport Parkway.
