Work on the Bath Road multi-use pathway delayed due to shoreline erosion

July 25, 2017 -

Work to construct a multi-use pathway along Bath Road between Collins Bay Road and Coverdale Drive has been rescheduled and will be completed May to October 2018 to accommodate repairs to the shoreline, which had been eroded by high water earlier this season.

"We are still building the multi-use pathway.  It's been a very rainy season and high water levels have led to some shoreline erosion in this area that has affected the planned work. We wanted to let everyone know when to expect activity in this area. We look forward to adding the multi-use pathway along this scenic route of the City's active transportation network," says Mark Van Buren, director of engineering.

The Bath Road bikeway and multi-use path will connect two existing sections of the Waterfront Trail, making it a more attractive choice for those who want to walk, cycle or use a wheelchair to get to their destination.

The project is supported by $268,500 in funds from the Government of Ontario through the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program.
