LRT Stage 2 detours (Tunney’s to Dominion)

The City of Ottawa is hosting an information session about proposed detours related to the construction of stage 2 of the LRT. The detours will be along Scott Street from Tunney’s Pasture to the Dominion transitway station. Please see this notice for more information:

Please join the City of Ottawa to discuss the proposed traffic and transit detours along Scott Street between Tunney’s Pasture and the future Dominion LRT Station during construction of the Confederation Line Western Extension (Stage 2) of the O-Train Light Rail Transit Project.

Macdonald Parkway between the Transitway and Workman Avenue, a temporary bridge over the Transitway near Roosevelt Avenue and intersection improvements at Scott Street and Lanark Avenue/Island Park Drive.

The meeting will outline, among other things, the rationale and implementation strategies for proposed traffic options and detours in this area, how the City will replace the Transitway while the LRT Dominion Station is under construction, the expected duration of the detour, the results of noise, vibration and air quality analysis, and mitigation strategies.

Iona Park rink building

The Hampton Iona Community Group is currently in the process of building the community skating rink in Iona Park.  It has been our practice for many years to use community volunteers to help build the rink.  Once the rink has been built, we have staff who supervise skating and maintain the rink.

In order to get the rink up and running, it takes approximately 15-18 floodings depending on the weather.  The more volunteers we have the quicker this can be done.  We have lost many of our volunteers from previously years and are seeking more people to help out getting the rink up and running.  Many of us in the community either use the rink or our children do.

A typical flooding takes about 1 hour to do.  While some people are willing to do a flooding on their own, many of us prefer to do it with a partner as it is easier to operate the hose with two people.

Whether you want to help build a skating rink or have always wondered what it was like to operate a fireman’s hose, this is an easy volunteer opportunity.

If you are available over the next couple of weeks to help out (the fewer volunteers we have, the longer it will take to build the rink), it would be appreciated if you could please email Lorne Cutler at or phone at 613 725-9147.    No experience is necessary.
