bridgestone drive and stonehaven drive, Ottawa, ON

The City of Ottawa has voted in favour of fast-tracking a new roundabout in Kanata South.

The roundabout will replace an all-way stop at the intersection of Stonehaven Drive and Bridgestone and Steeplechase Drives.

The city identified the intersection as a challenge because of high traffic volume.

The committee approved a plan to have the developer Urbandale pay $1.2 million to speed up the construction to coincide with work taking place in the area. The city would then pay back the developer in 2013 and 2014.

Council is expected to approve the plan Wednesday.
