Ottawa Traffic: Section of Hwy. 174 closed this weekend due to LRT work

Commuters in the east side of Ottawa will have to find an alternate route this weekend due to the closure of part of Highway 174.

The city of Ottawa says both the east and west lanes of Hwy. 174 will be closed between Blair Road and Montreal Road from 8pm Friday to 6:30am Monday.

The closure is to allow crews to continue working on Phase 2 of the light rail transit project from Blair Station to Trim Road. The city says the closure will facilitate the demolition of the Blair Transitway Bridge to make room to connect the Stage 2 LRT Blair Median Rail Bridge to Blair Station.

These are the diversions around the road closure on Hwy. 174


  • eastwards traffic is diverted from Blair Road to Ogilvie Road to the Montreal Road Hwy. 174 driveway.

  • westward traffic is diverted via Montreal Road to Ogilvie Road to the Blair Road Hwy. 174 driveway.
