Goulbourn Forced Road Closure

Goulbourn Forced Road will be closed from Keyrock Drive (right after the Rockeries) to Innovation Drive (just before the entrance to the Richcraft Recreation Centre Kanata) from February 12, 2018 to August 28, 2018 to allow for blasting, underground infrastructure installation (such as the construction of a watermain, sanitary and sewer) and more.


Please note:

  • Residents in the surrounding areas (Keyrock, Badgeley, Remnor, Kanata Rockeries, Goulbourn Forced Road), in addition to businesses on Innovation between Terry Fox and Hines, and on Hines from dead end to Solandt, as well as RRCK, will be notified.
  • There will be access for houses and businesses at all time (including emergency vehicle access).
  • Signs will be installed and present around the area detailing how long the road will be closed.
  • Councillor Wilkinson and the city have requested a safe passage for pedestrians and cyclists along Goulbourn Forced Road that must be provided at all times, unless due to the nature of the work, it is unsafe to do so. The Contractor is to make every effort to minimize the duration that pedestrian and cyclist access along Goulbourn Forced Road is prohibited. When required, the Contractor is to provide traffic control persons to guide pedestrians and cyclists.

If you have any further questions, please don’t hesitate to contact Amy Zhou in my Office ( or Stacey Rathwell (, Traffic Operational Studies Officer.
