Roadwork Ahead

Summer/Fall 2019

We are saying, “hasta la vista, potholes!” on St-Joseph Boulevard this year.

The road resurfacing project on St-Joseph Boulevard this summer is underway from approximately Montreal Road to the Centrum area. At all times there will be one lane open in each direction.

This will mean a better experience for customers who frequent businesses in the district, and will be great for those who live in and around St-Joseph.

Road construction can be a challenge for surrounding businesses. We would like you to know two things:

  • the BIA is committed to help keep our business members and the community informed as construction progresses by posting here and though our regular community emails (subscribe right here on our website), and
  • we are Open For Business!

For more details or any questions regarding this project, please visit the City of Ottawa’s page for Current Roadwork and Street Closures, or call 3-1-1.
