Sir John Carling Building Deconstruction-Temporary Road Closures

OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - July 10, 2014) - Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) wishes to notify motorists and pedestrians of temporary road closures due to activities planned as part of the Sir John Carling Building Deconstruction project.

As the Sir John Carling Building has reached the end of its life cycle, it was determined the most cost-effective solution is to deconstruct the building. As such, AIM Environmental Group will proceed with the implosion of the building on July 13, 2014.

The following streets will be closed from 6:00 a.m. to 7:30 a.m.

  • Carling Avenue from Irving Street to Preston Street
  • Preston Street from Carling Avenue to Prince of Wales Drive
  • Prince of Wales Drive from Preston Street to the National Capital Commission Scenic Driveway

Signage will be posted to redirect motorists and pedestrians.
