Woodroffe Avenue Reconstruction Traffic Control Plans (Ottawa, ON)


Castleglenn Consultants Inc., in associate with J.L. Richards and Associates Ltd. were retained by the City of Ottawa to produce detailed Traffic Control Plans (TCP) required for the watermain replacement and the reconstruction of Woodroffe Avenue, between Highway 417 and Baseline Road.

The project consisted of:

  • A detailed analysis of traffic operations under multiple closure scenarios, including an analysis of origin-destination, diversions and signal and stop-controlled traffic operations throughout the study area (Greenbank Road to Maitland Avenue and from Baseline Road to Carling Avenue);
  • Preparation of TCP that depicted the preferred southbound closure, which included the closure of Highway 417 EB-to-SB and WB-to-SB off-ramps at Woodroffe Avenue and the southbound Woodroffe Avenue lanes between Highway 417 and Baseline Road;
  • Two NB lanes were maintained along Woodroffe Avenue with access provided for at Iris Street, local homes and at Fire Station No. 21; and
  • The duration of the project was anticipated to be approximately five to six months with work being conducted during daytime hours and with work being undertaken on the east side of Woodroffe Avenue during the first stage, and on the west side during the second stage.

The TCP prepared complied with the City of Ottawa’s Traffic Studies and Safety Engineer Department standards, policies and guidelines and incorporated specifications outlined in the Ontario Traffic Manual (Book 7) and the Manual of Uniform Traffic Control Devices for Canada.
