OC Transpo plans to move bus service at Lincoln Fields Station to a temporary platform starting December 6, to allow construction of the new Stage 2 O-Train station.
It says the work will not impact the existing Transitway platform, as the temporary bus platform will be located to the east.
All bus routes are remaining unchanged at the station, and facilities such as shelters, benches, maps and bike racks, will all still be available.
OC Transpo says updated signs will guide customers to boarding locations. OC Transpo staff will also be on site to assist customers before and after the change.
Customers can also find out where to catch their bus by visiting octranspo.com or calling 613-741-4390.
Due to construction, pedestrians and cyclists entering the station from Carling Avenue will need to use the station overpass because the eastern pedestrian access at the traffic signals will be closed.
The passenger pick-up and drop-off zone will also be closed during construction, allowing OC Transpo buses only to enter the station. Alternative passenger pick-up and drop-off spots are available at Tunney’s Pasture, Baseline and Bayshore stations for customers connecting to transit by vehicle or taxi.
Stage 2 of Ottawa's light rail system includes the extension of O-Train Line 1 west to Baseline and Moodie and east to Trim, as well as the expansion of O-Train Line 2.
