Albert Street (Ottawa)

Albert Street (Ottawa)

Albert Street (Ottawa Road #42) is one of the main east-west roads in downtown Ottawa, Canada. Albert is one way going west. It carries the westbound portion of the transitway through downtown. with Slater Street just to the south carrying the eastbound portion. Previously, it was planned that O-Train would have been extended to downtown running westbound along Albert.

Albert Street begins at Elgin Street, where traffic coming off the Mackenzie King Bridge is divided between Albert and Slater. This is just east of Confederation Park and 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.
