Back to School

Back to School

As young people head back to school this fall, a few changes have been made relating to traffic that will make their journey a little safer.

You'll notice that a second adult crossing guard has been added mornings and afternoons at Bank Street & Sunnyside Avenue. A request placed by the Councillor’s Office was reviewed last spring and City staff responsible for School Zone Traffic agreed that the intersection warranted a second crossing guard. Ian and Andrew have been hired to fill these positions.  Please take extra care at this very busy intersection.

A Collaborative Approach to Traffic Issues

As Old Ottawa South (OOS) grows and changes, traffic patterns also change. This is certainly true in the southwest section of OOS, home of the Ottawa Tennis and Lawn Bowling Club (OTLBC). The Club has been a fixture of OOS since 1923 and has had to adapt with the times. Many regretted the demise of the lawn bowling component of the Club’s activities but no one can deny the success of the beach volleyball program which has replaced the lawn bowls.

Seneca Proposed for Safe Crossing of Colonel By Drive

Seneca Proposed for Safe Crossing of Colonel By Drive

Through the course of 2016 and 2017, the OSCA Traffic and Safety Committee has been advocating for a safe crossing of Colonel By Drive at a location somewhere between Avenue Road and Bronson Avenue. At the request of the Traffic and Safety Committee, the City of Ottawa and the National Capital Commission entered into discussions to determine if such a pedestrian and bicycle crossing could be possible.  It was agreed that it is indeed possible and Seneca Street has been proposed as the potential site.
