Airport Parkway (Ottawa)
Airport Parkway (Ottawa Route 79) is an expressway in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It runs from the Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier International Airport to an interchange with Heron Road where it turns into Bronson Avenue.
Airport Parkway is a two-lane expressway for most of its length, and is home to one of Ontario's only two single-point urban interchanges at its Hunt Club Road exit. The speed limit is 80 km/h (50 mph) for its entire length.
Until 1997, Airport Parkway was maintained by the federal government of Canada under the jurisdiction of the National Capital Commission.
The road has had 300 collisions and three fatalities since 2000, making it the focus of future improvements. There has been some discussing in twinning it to a four-lane expressway or freeway, although those discussions have stalled due to local controversy.
The following is a list of exits along Airport Parkway. Some exits on Bronson Avenue are also included.
