On October 6, 2017, the Minister of the Environment and Climate Change made the decision to deny the Part II Order requests and impose by order additional conditions on the Ottawa Road 174/ County Road 17 Improvements (Project) proposed by the City of Ottawa and the United Counties of Prescott and Russell (the Proponents). Subsequent to making that order, errors were identified in the conditions that require correcting.

A number of questions were also raised with respect to the conditions as drafted which warrant minor changes to the conditions. The conditions, as amended, ensure that cycling and transit continue to be a priority and that the concerns of the residents in the area of the Project regarding noise are addressed. As a result, the Minister is replacing his order of October 6, 2017 with this order of November 7, 2017.
