Road Resurfacing – Wilhaven Drive

In 2021, there is approximately $45 million for roadway renewal and upgrading rural roads. The City’s road resurfacing program rehabilitates and improves the driving surfaces of Ottawa’s roadways. Localized repairs to both curbs and sidewalks, along with accessibility improvements and updates, are also part of the program.

Work will occur along Wilhaven Drive from Canaan Road to 250m east of BeckettsCreek Road.

Work will involve milling of the existing surface, placement of granular material, roadway resurfacing,

and granular shouldering. Increased noise levels to be expected in order to facilitate the work. This work

tentatively planned to start end of May 2021, weather permitting and is expected to be completed in

September 2021.

Work will take place between the hours of 7 am and 10 pm. Lane closures with flagging expected.

If you require special accommodation, please contact the undersigned. Accessible formats and communication supports are available, upon request, at the following link:
