Only a few minutes after leaving Ottawa station, VIA #632 crosses over Innes Road, with P42DC 909 leading a five-car LRC consist of 3452, 3326, 3328, 3313, and 3301.

The underpass replaced a level crossing in 1977, and has room for two tracks. Just ahead of #632 is the entrance to the M&O wye, which VIA uses to turn consists. The M&O subdivision between here and Rigaud was removed by CP in the 1980s, but VIA actually owns the right-of-way, preserving the alignment for potential future use as a high-speed line.
