Years of groundwork leads to massive investment in Cumberland Ward
For some time the City of Ottawa has been working to attract jobs to east Ottawa.
In 2015, in order to encourage economic development, the City approved Official Plan Amendment 153 to extend the Carlsbad trickle feed water system to the Boundary Road rural industrial area.
Improving traffic flow on Brian Coburn Boulevard
Stephen was proud to secure the $1.8 million in the 2018 budget to have the roundabout constructed this year. This builds on the $750 million of infrastructure investments secured to benefit the residents of Cumberland Ward since 2010.
Construction of the Brian Coburn / Strasbourg roundabout is set to begin in mid-May.
“Never before have we seen so much investment in our community,” says Cumberland Councillor Stephen Blais. “The new roundabout at Strasbourg and the other intersection modifications approved for Brian Coburn Boulevard will ensure we continue to benefit from a speedy alternative to Innes Road.”
