The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group is advertising for a traffic manager who will work with community and Ottawa City Hall to ease congestion in the Glebe.
With the return of CFL Football, professional soccer, and major concerts, there will be tens of thousands of people attending Lansdowne Park for events.
And that's not counting the people who will visit the retail stores, movie theatres or Whole Foods store.
Bernie Ashe, the CEO of Lansdowne, says the traffic manager's job will be challenging.
"This is somebody who is going to be looking at all aspects of traffic management, including looking at alternative means to getting people down to Lansdowne", said Ashe.
And Ashe says every form will be looked at, from shuttle buses to bicycles and pedestrian routes.
OSEG says Transportation Demand Manger will be hired within a few weeks.
