Trail improvements

North section - Victoria St.

Starting Monday, August 17, construction of a pedestrian crossing will take place on the Iron Horse Trail at Victoria St. Construction is expected to take two weeks.

Trail users are asked to cross at the traffic lights at Victoria St. and West Ave.

North section – Glasgow St. to city limits

Starting Monday, May 25, lighting will be installed along the north section of the Iron Horse Trail from Glasgow Street to the city limits. Staff will also be doing concrete work near the trail entrances and rest areas. Construction is expected to take up to five weeks.

Construction will occur on short sections at a time, and the width of the trail allows single file traffic to safely pass.

Please practice physical distancing by maintaining at least two metres, or six feet, from construction workers and other trail users.
