Must read

The province is building a new highway interchange in south Ottawa.

The Ontario government has announced a $5-million investment to build the interchange at Highway 416 and Barnsdale Road.

The interchange is part of a new $543-million deal between the province and the City of Ottawa that includes up to $181 million for critical transportation projects.

“As Ontario’s population grows, it’s critical we ensure our province’s transportation network keeps pace,” said Prabmeet Sarkaria, Minister of Transportation. “The new interchange at Highway 416 and Barnsdale Road will help local residents and other drivers get where they need to go faster and more conveniently.”

Ottawa Mayor Mark Sutcliffe welcomed the news, calling it a game changer.

“Advancing the design and construction of a new interchange at Highway 416 and Barnsdale Road will improve infrastructure and connectivity within our communities,” Sutcliffe said. “It’s a game changer and will transform the way we move around our great city.”

The province will now work with the city to plan and design the interchange, which will also serve the communities of Manotick and Richmond.
