Crosstown Trail

Wards 5 and 6

Summary

As recommended by the Active Transportation Master Plan and with funding through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program, the town has initiated a 4 metre wide asphalt multi-use trail along the Crosstown Trail from Neyagawa Boulevard to North Ridge Trail. The improvements to the pedestrian/cycling network features rest areas, bicycle repair stations, tourist information kiosks, and graphic markers for wayfinding. The trail will not be widened through woodlots and the natural heritage system.

The Phase I study, from Neyagawa Boulevard to east of Trafalgar Road, was completed in May 2018. Additional improvements are expected for the Phase 1 study area.

The Phase II area includes trail sections from Eighth Line to North Ridge Trail. A public drop-in opportunity was held in December 2018 and September 2017 to review the Phase II designs. The town has completed the detailed design and construction is anticipated for 2019.

With support through the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program/Avec l’appui du Programme d’infrastructure communautaire de Canada 150.
