Queensway (417) Study and Assessment Plan

The Ministry of Transportation (MTO), in partnership with Totten Sims Hubicki (TSH) Associates Limited and in consultation with the City of Ottawa and the National Capital Commission, has completed a Preliminary Design Study and Class Environmental Assessment of the Ottawa Queensway (Highway 417) from Highway 416 easterly to Anderson Road.


The public is invited to review this plan.


  1. What do we know about the Baseline Road bus lane plans for the section from Greenback Road to Richmond Road? And, where will the connection go from Baseline Road to the Bayshore Bus station?

    • The focus of the transit plan has been on developing Woodroffe East on baseline. Vague plans only for Woodruffe west. Expect it to develop with a bus only, and bike lanes added on each side as this is what they indicated at the open house. The time frames are a long way off. All money is being used up by the big dig downtown.
