O-Train to close July 12-August 14 for upgrades

Just a heads-up for commuters who use the O-Train: The system will cease operations for a five-week period from July 12-August 14, 2010 for $5.11M worth of upgrades. According to OC Transpo's press release (.PDF), the repairs will be done to the "track infrastructure, the signal system, trains and the Rideau River Bridge".

Until regular O-Train service resumes on Sunday, August 15 (barring any delays, of course), a bus route parallel to the train will be available.

Thanks for the heads up! I take the O-Train every day to work in the winter (well, until I move in afew weeks that is), but in the summer I bike and use the O-Train as my rainy day backup.
