The city is planning a multi-use pathway along the Rideau River, between Brantwood and Springhurst parks.

Besides making travel between Old Ottawa East’s signature green spaces easier, the new pathway will be a major piece in the city’s cycling network, according to a city spokesperson.

“The pathway planned along this corridor will (have) a minimum 3 meter paved width, yellow centre line and a 1.5 meter clear buffer on each side,” said Carina Duclos, manager of Design and Municipal Construction.

The pathway will run from Onslow Crescent to the existing multi-use pathway that stops at the University of Ottawa Lees Campus near the Rideau River shoreline, Duclos added.

The new pathway will be about 1.4 km long.

The project is in the preliminary design stage. Once the city develops a detailed plan, it will tender the project.

The city will lead construction of the proposed pathway outside of the former Oblates property. The Regional Group, which is developing Greystone Village on the Oblates property will lead pathway construction on a 600-metre portion over private lands.

The city has not set a start date for construction.
