The Rideau Valley Drive South project continued with the renewal of storm sewers, introduction of sidewalks and resurfacing from Dorack to Lockhead.

Sewer installation was completed on Martin Street between Fortune Street and King Street.

Flewellyn Road, between Conley and Huntley, were microsurfaced. This helps restore the road to its condition prior to the Enbridge pipeline project from 2014.

Mackey Road was upgraded from gravel surface to a paved surface through surface treatment. This project extended the existing paved surface from Viola Street to McCordick Road.


Sidewalk projects included upgrading the sidewalk on Beaverwood Road, between Ann Street and Manotick Main Street, as well as the renewal of the sidewalk on Roger Stevens Drive, west of Fourth Line Road. This project was delayed from 2015 because the scope of the project was larger than its budget.

Community Centres

The replacement of the canteen at the Alfred Taylor Recreation Centre was complete and the play structure was replaced as well and will be completed by Canada Day.

The much discussed Manotick Arena expansion moved forward; design and tendering occured this year and construction was slated to begin in 2017.
