This winter the roads all over Ottawa have suffered from the continuous freeze and thaw. All minor roadways have developed potholes, uneven pavement and bumps to varying degrees.
The 8Th Line Road Over the last few winters has deteriorated and has received no repairs. This roadway has become a major thruway for vehicles of all sizes between Highway 31 (Bank Street) and the East End of the Urban section of Ottawa.
In 1970's it was a seldom used dirt road. Then it was paved with little preparation work. The road has little or no shoulders which can create driving problems.
The following three sections have been an ongoing problem and should be repaired. Repairs not just signage is the answer.
At intersection where Pana Road meets the 8Th Line there are two major bumps, in secession, which will cause a vehicle to become airborne at the posted speed limit. It's dangerous enough with a car let alone a large truck. It's a matter of time before someone leaves the road and gets injured or worse yet hits an oncoming vehicle.
Also around the 2400 section, on the southbound lane there's a long, wide and deep rut that is extremely hazardous. This may cause a vehicle to lose control trying to avoid it.
There is also a series of ruts in the northbound lane, north of Rodney farm Road that again is hazardous. It has in the past contributed to accidents in combination to with drifting snow.
We, the tax payers of Ottawa, the travellers of the 8Th line and residents along the 8Th line, demand that the 8Th Line road be repaired to a safe condition before someone is seriously injuried or killed.
