The National Capital Commission-owned houses at 273, 275, 277 and 279 Sussex Drive are on the move as workers prepare to move the buildings a few metres back on the property in order to widen the roadway. Members of the Lowertown community fought to keep the homes, one of which was former governor general Adrienne Clarkson's childhood home, from being demolished. Sussex reconstruction work began this spring and will continue until late fall, as the city replaces water mains, sanitary and storm sewers along the road. The reconstruction is part of the plan to complete the NCC's ceremonial route, Confederation Boulevard.
