Traffic lights in Ottawa


Recommended Posts

Went by Merviale/Meadowlands last week.

The Aluminium 12-8-8-12 signal is gone (Only two Aluminum 12-8-12 signals remain), Loud-Invero also stated on CPTDB that the Aluminium 12-8-8-12 at Waller/Daly on signal is gone.

This now marks the end of an era in Ottawa.

The traffic lights at Iris/Transitway is now all LED and hanging on overhead wires.

One of the Aluminium 12-8-12 signal on Sir John A MacDonald/Dominion is now replaced with an LED 12-8-12. Only one remains there.

The other that still remain are Albert/Bronson (2 right turn signals) and Lees/Highway 417 (2 straight ahead signals).

Where do these old lights go?

If aluminum, probably for scrap. The rest are junked given signals in the mid 90's were switched to much cheaper, slimmer, plastic. Some people manage to recover them and sell then on kijiji and what not. Basically in short, they're disposed of.

The end of this video indicates that the traffic lights on the south Queensway off-ramp to Riverside will finally be getting proper poles and the signals will remain 12-12-12s.

They were replaced shortly after with full MTO spec signals. Sadly, the "Cyclop" signals are gone as well.
