In Fall 2011, the City has initiated a study of the downtown area which will explore opportunities for improving the pedestrian and cycling experience downtown as a result of the reduction in buses once the LRT begins operation in 2017. This study was initially referred to as the Downtown Ottawa Mobility Overlay project. This study will include an analysis of how street layout and 1-way vs 2-way street operation could be changed as a result of the LRT operation.
The CCC is a participant in this study and has provided the following Downtown Moves CCC comments.
