Beryl Gaffney Stormwater Outfall Stabilization Project (Fall 2023)
The Beryl Gaffney Stormwater Outfall (OUT16650) Retrofit Project will involve earthworks, armourstone wall reconstruction, outlet pathway improvements, and temporary access and landscape reinstatement works.
The work is needed to rehabilitate the plunge pool and outlet channel to the Rideau River which has experienced erosion. This work will enable the stormwater outfall to continue the important role of maintaining the water quality of storm water draining to the Rideau River.
Construction will begin mid-November 2023. The initial activities will include mobilization to site, tree and vegetation removals, and earthworks to create a temporary access for construction equipment to the river shoreline. Construction is planned to be phased, with the outlet channel being stabilized prior to the end of December 2023. Removal of the temporary access and final landscape reinstatement will occur in spring 2024.
TLC Exteriors will take every precaution to minimize interruptions to the normal life of your family and/or operation of your business, but as you can appreciate, there may be some inconvenience during the course of the work, such as delays and pedestrian / cycling detours when travelling through the construction zone, noise, dust and vibration. These inconveniences are sometimes unavoidable in order to complete the required work of infrastructure renewal. Observed vibrations due to construction activity rarely exceed the threshold to cause damage to structures. Should the conditions seem excessive, please contact the City’s Project Manager
Although no vehicular traffic is impacted with this work, some disruptions to the Beryl Gaffney pathway running parrallel to the Rideau River can be expected. While active work is underway there is the potential for flagging operations and pathway detours. Pathway access outside of working hours is expected to be minimally impacted. The lookout access adjacent to the stormwater outfall is expected to be closed to the public through the end of 2023, and again in the spring of 2024 when reinstatement works are being undertaken.
Hydro Ottawa Equipment Replacement (on June 22, 2023)
On June 22, 2023, Hydro Ottawa will be upgrading electrical equipment that will impact customers located on Mission Inn Grove.
We recognize that construction and power outages can be disruptive. Our goal with this work is to maintain the electricity system so we can prevent larger and longer unplanned outages from occurring in the future. Please be assured that scheduling of this power outage has been reviewed and will move forward with our customers’ best interest in mind.
You may notice increased construction presence throughout the day. Traffic control and lane reductions may be implemented to ensure that roads and sidewalks remain safe for residents and staff.
As mentioned above, a planned power outage is required as a result of this work. All affected customers are contacted by phone, text or email - depending on the communication preferences indicated on their account - and informed by a written notice delivered to their door, if applicable. Further, notifications will be provided if the power outage is to extend beyond the original duration time. In the case of circumstances beyond our control, the outage may be rescheduled.
Our qualified staff and contractors will conduct this work safely and efficiently, ensuring that any inconvenience is minimal.

Ottawa Community Housing (Starting: May 2023)
Starting this Spring 2023, there is a new housing development going in at the corner of Bending Way and Jockvale Road. Ottawa Community Housing has shared that the construction of 505 & 515 Branch St. will be begin shortly in May 2023, with on-site activity being visible in the coming weeks.
The development will include 32 apartment units, equally split between two- and three-bedroom units. Based on the type of construction, Ottawa Community Housing has advised that construction activities may appear intermittent, however this is normal for modular construction where the majority of work is completed off-site, in a manufacturing facility. The project is expected to continue throughout the summer and into the fall, and we should expect to welcome our new neighbours before the end of the 2023.
