Barrhaven Light Rail Transit and Rail Grade-Separation Environmental Assessment Study
Location: The study area is approximately 12 km long and spans the neighbourhoods of Barrhaven, Knoxdale – Merivale and College as well as the NCC Greenbelt in Ottawa ON. / Completed 2020
Client: Parsons / City of Ottawa
The objective of this report was to provide a summary of the landscape and urban design character of the study area as it relates to linear transportation infrastructure (roads and transitway) within the study area. This summary provided a baseline for which impacts of a Preferred Design on the existing landscape and urban design character can be assessed and serve as a basis for the development of a landscape strategy for the Preferred Design/Recommended Plan.
Ottawa City Council approved the EA Study recommendations and functional design in November 2020.
