Ottawa-Gatineau traffic updates for May 16
Live traffic updates as they happen during the morning and afternoon commutes
Good morning commuters!
There will be narrow lanes on the eastbound Highway 174 at the Tenth Line Road off-ramp for guardrail repairs today.
What are your thoughts on this: now that Sunday Bikedays are back on certain NCC roads on Sunday mornings, why don't we just close the Queen Elizabeth Driveway to traffic on the weekend during the Canadian Tulip Festival?
Last weekend they were allowing vehicles onto it, only to sit in gridlock for ages.
Makes no sense. It's not convenient or efficient, so just close it.
Probably a lot safer, too.
Some of the feedback during Ottawa Morning:
Nope. Bad idea. Even thru bottleneck, its still usable and integral to many. Connects carling to bank, bronson, riduae st. Let it stay open—@Mobin911
It gets closed for less in Winterlude! Even just the stretch from Bronson to Preston: it's a zoo on tulip weekends and would be way better without cars.—@ChristophSolar
Might have made it impossible to take my elderly mother in her wheelchair... but willing to consider if handicapped parking still available at the Experimental Farm.—@isabelcampbell
