Please be advised that Rideau Centre’s contractor, PCL, will be removing the large tower crane from the expansion site over the weekend. This important project milestone will require Rideau Street to be closed to vehicle and bus traffic between Colonel By Drive and Nicholas Street beginning at 8:00 p.m. on Friday, February 27th until 6:00 a.m. on Monday, March 2nd. In the event the work is completed sooner, the street will reopen.
During this time, all OC Transpo routes on Rideau Street travelling between Colonel By Drive and Nicholas Street will be relocated to Mackenzie King Bridge.
The northside sidewalk will remain fully open and accessible to pedestrians during the period of work. The southside sidewalk between Freiman Mall and Nicholas Street will be closed as a safety precaution.
