Fake Friday: New Segregated Construction Lane Snarls Westboro Traffic
Westboro - Traffic in the Westboro area along Richmond Road was congested further today after the City Of Ottawa created a double Segregated Construction Lane (SCL) that reduces road traffic to a single 5 foot wide lane. The new Segregated Construction Lane will allow the influx of thousands of construction vehicles being used for the widespread condo developments in the Westboro area to operate with more ease. Previously, construction vehicles and regular street traffic would have to battle for movement in the busy condo corridor of Richmond Road. The new SCL will allow construction vehicles accessing the condo construction sites and sewer/road work to travel without the local residents getting in the way.
