Petit Train du Sud - RailTrail Temporary closure
« on: August 24, 2010, 21:39:45 »
John7777 was in town recently and had some news for us:

While cycling the Ottawa Carleton Trail today I came across the following notice.
 
"The trail will be closed from West Ridge Drive to Jinkinson Road from Monday 30 August until Wednesday September 1st. for maintenance"
 
Is there somewhere where this can be posted for other Ottawa geocachers?

Be warned, temporary trail closure!

I am thinking of doing it this weekend..  Maybe there is others interested in a Sunday bike ride? Drop me a line and we might be able to plan something.

So, it's the trail in Stittsville....  Hmm...

Does anyone know what kind of maintenance they are doing?

I was there yesterday, the signs only said closed for maintenance,
nothing more specific on what kind of work they'll be doing.
Removing all the poison ivy maybe?   ::)

The only thing I saw on that section of the trail was that the trail is falling into the pond by the lookout platform. There are orange and black road bollards around the area, perhaps they are going to put a new culvert under the trail.

Info from http://www.shadqadri.com/

Emergency culvert replacement on TransCanada Trail

I would like to notify residents that the City needs to replace a culvert on the Trans Canada Trail that must be completed immediately due to contractor restrictions and permit restrictions from the Mississippi Valley Conservation.

The culvert is located approximately 800 metres west of the entrance at Abbott Street and West Ridge Drive (adjacent to the lookout). The trail will be closed between the entrance at Abbott and West Ridge and the entrance at Jikinson Road. The work will be commencing on Monday, August 30 and should be completed by end of day on September 1.

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciate your patience during this time.
