Safe passage on Dozois Road

Dozois Road is the southern-most extension of Limebank Road. It begins where Limebank ends at Mitch Owen\'s Road just east of Manotick. Dozois was once a pleasant country road, however, over the past several years, traffic has increased and it has become quite dangerous. There are several blind spots and the shoulder is not wide enough to allow safe passage for pedestrians and cyclists. Children walk to and from school every day, dodging heavy construction vehicles, large delivery trucks, speeding sports cars and winter snow plows. On Monday September 24 a serious vehicle accident took place and a seventeen year old boy had to be airlifted to hospital. Before another accident occurs, it is time that the City of Ottawa made Doizois safe for pedestrians, joggers, school gym classes and cyclists. We demand that the City of Ottawa 1. Lower the speed limit on Dozois. 2. Build a walking/bicycle trail that runs from Mitch Owens Road to the end of Dozois. 3. Provide accommodation for blind spots.
