Gatineau Parkway Road Closures for Rollerskiing this Fall
By: Team XC Ottawa (2016/09/07)
Here is a note from Ian about Parkway Closures and the Schedule for this Fall:
- Weekday evening closures of the North Loop will continue Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays until Sun., Oct. 23, when the entire parkway system will be closed for the winter. Thank you to Moe Samm and Chelsea Nordiq, and Jean Thie (Tues.), Dave McMahon, Lise Meloche and XC Zone (Wed.) and Raphaël Couturier and Skinouk (Thurs.) for volunteering to take care of these closures.
- Thank you also to those who have done the deed throughout this spring and summer: coaches and volunteers from Chelsea Nordiq and Nakkertok, and our Tues. and Wed. evening stalwarts: Jean Thie (Tues.), and Pierre Miller and Marc-André Audette and volunteers from their clubs, Le Club Espoir Triathlon de Gatineau and Les Cuisses Or de l’Outaouais (Wed.).
Weekend Road Closures
- The Short Loop (P9 to Mica, the intersection of the Gatineau and Champlain Pkwys.) will be closed to vehicular traffic both Saturday and Sunday mornings from 6:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m.
- The North Loop (P8-P9) will stay shut both days an extra two hours, until 1:00 p.m.
Fall Rhapsody Schedule
The Saturday and Sunday short loop program will be shortened during the weekends of the Fall Rhapsody, October 1stand 2nd, 8th and 9th and 15th and 16th .
The closures will be from 6 am until 10:30 am, time at which all of Gatineau parkway (including north loop section) will reopen to vehicular circulation. The Fall Rhapsody is a busy time of year in the park and these early reopening hours will be key in allowing traffic flow through the park. Please take note and organize your training sessions accordingly.
