Pinecrest ramp closures begin Sunday

Ottawa – Nightly ramp closures at Highway 417 and Pinecrest Road begin Sunday, July 5. Both eastbound on-ramps will close at 9 p.m. and open the following morning by 5 a.m.

The on-ramp for motorists approaching northbound from Greenbank Road will be closed nightly for four weeks. The on-ramp for motorists approaching southbound from Pinecrest Road will only be closed two nights, July 5 and July 6.
