Report: Ottawa-Gatineau traffic updates for June 21


Good morning commuters!

Not too much to be concerned about this morning. 

Tonight, though, both the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival and the Tim Hortons Ottawa Dragonboat Festival will get people out.

If you’re going to catch some jazz at Confederation Park, organizers suggest parking at the NAC, City Hall, Rideau Centre or trying your luck on a nearby street.
