- Albert Street (Ottawa)
Albert Street (Ottawa Road #42) is one of the main east-west roads in downtown
Ottawa, Canada. Albert is one waygoing west. It carries the westbound portion of the transitway through downtown. with Slater Streetjust to the south carrying the eastbound portion. Previously, it was planned that O-Trainwould have been extended to downtown running westbound along Albert.
Albert Street begins at
Elgin Street, where traffic coming off the Mackenzie King Bridgeis divided between Albert and Slater. This is just east of Confederation Parkand the National Arts Centre. In downtown Albert is lined mainly by government office towers, but the area become more residential. This area is also home to the former Ottawa Technical High School. At Bronson Avenue Albert turns to the south, as it plunges down "Nanny Goat Hill". The transitway separates from Albert and Slater Street merges into it at the bottom of this hill. Until 2006, Albert Street officially ended just west of Booth Street, where it merged imperceptibly with a rump section of Wellington Street, but with Wellington rerouted past the Canadian War Museum, Albert now continues until past the Bayview O-Train Station, where it becomes Scott Street.
