Stonehaven and Eagleson Widening Project

Councillor Allan Hubley is pleased to announce that another road project is scheduled this summer that will help alleviate traffic congestion in Kanata South.

The Eagleson Road and Stonehaven Drive intersection regularly experiences traffic congestion during the afternoon peak period. The queue for the southbound left-turn movement on Eagleson Road extends into the through lane. Therefore, there will be an additional left turn lane added on Eagleson Road. An additional eastbound lane will also be constructed on Stonehaven Drive between Eagleson Road and Bridlewood Drive. Construction will begin in the summer of 2012.

“I am pleased that I am able to announce yet another road modification that will help alleviate traffic congestion during the morning and evening commute,” said Councillor Hubley. “I want to assure the Bridlewood community that I am listening to their concerns.”

The construction of bicycle lanes will also be included to help eliminate conflicts between cyclists and other vehicles. As well, a continuous cycling route will be in place from Eagleson Road to Bridlewood Drive.

“This project is about making the intersection more efficient, while also ensuring the safety of the many residents who are cycling,” stated Hubley. “The work on Stonehaven Drive, is part of a bigger plan to resolve the traffic issues in the area.”

The project is being carried out under the Network Modification Program with the objective of increasing capacity and safety. The intersection of Eagleson Road and Stonehaven Drive is within the top 35 priority locations for retrofit within the City of Ottawa.

Additional Information:

The total budget for the Stonehaven project (including the roundabout at Steeple Chase/Bridgestone) is $2.65 million.

 

Rationale for the project:

The existing conditions in the project corridor that have triggered the road modifications include:

(1) Fast-growing residential development in the Bridlewood community creating high traffic volumes along the corridor;

(2) High turning volumes in the afternoon peak periods resulting in extending queuing on the single southbound left-turn lane on Eagleson Road to Stonehaven Drive;

(3) Deteriorated existing asphalt sidewalks;

(4) High turning traffic volumes at Bridlewood Drive/ Stonehaven Drive intersection in peak periods;

(5) High traffic volumes at the intersection of Stonehaven Drive and Steeple Chase Drive/ Bridgestone Drive during peak periods.

Outcome: Upon completion of construction there will be:

(1)  Double southbound left-turn lanes from Eagleson Road to Stonehaven Drive;

(2) Double eastbound through lanes on Stonehaven Drive between Eagleson Road and Bridlewood Drive;

(3) Single westbound traffic lane with a dedicated left-turn lane at Stonehaven drive/ harness lane intersection;

(4) A shared westbound lane for through and right-turn traffic at Bridlewood Drive/ Stonehaven Drive, added  to a westbound through lane;

(5) Bike lane in each direction along Stonehaven Drive;

(6) Concrete Sidewalks on both sides along Stonehaven Drive between Eagleson Road and Bridlewood Drive;

(7) New entrance to the Church of Nazarene;

(8) Single lane roundabout at Stonehaven Drive and Bridgestone Dr./Steeple Chase Drive.
