Your commute: Queensway ramp at Carling expected to reopen on Sunday

It’s the news for which many west-end commuters have been waiting.

Coun. Jeff Leiper said that he got an encouraging update Monday on the Carling Avenue Queensway ramp long closed by construction.

The ramp between Carling and Kirkwood on the eastbound Highway 417 will reopen at 6 a.m. Sunday, according to an update from the Ministry of Transportation reported by the city’s traffic map.

“It’s weather-dependent, and we’ve got the commitment of a Friday update,” Leiper tweeted.

Construction-related closures: 

Highway 417 is reduced to two eastbound lanes between Carling and Parkdale avenues from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. every night until Thursday for work on the Harmer Avenue pedestrian bridge. The Parkdale Avenue offramp stays open.

Until Sunday at 10 p.m., Albert Street will be closed between Lyon Street and Bronson Avenue, and Bay Street will be closed between Slater and Queen streets so that a new gas main can be installed. Pedestrians access will be maintained. Cyclists are asked to dismount and use the sidewalk.

On, Highway 417 there will be westbound lane reductions between Bronson Avenue and Island Park Drive from 10 p.m. Friday to 6 a.m. Saturday.

Until mid-November, Bronson Avenue is reduced to one lane in each direction between Brewer Way and the Rideau Canal Bridge for road work on weeknights from 6 p.m. to midnight and on weekends between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Access will be maintained for cyclists and pedestrians.

Through Dec. 20, the Alexandra Bridge will be closed to vehicles for repair work from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. on weeknights and on weekends from 7 p.m. on Fridays to 6 a.m. on Mondays. Pedestrians and cyclists will still be able to use the bridge.

Queen Street between Bronson Avenue and Bay Street is closed to motorists for construction of the Bay Street cycling facility. It’s still open for cyclists and pedestrians.
