Bath Road Bikeway
This project is supported by $268,500 in funds from the Government of Ontario through the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program.
Aimed at encouraging walking and rolling, the City is building a 1.7 km asphalt bikeway and multiuse pathway in the right-of-way along Bath Road from Collins Bay Road to Coverdale Drive connecting two sections of the Waterfront Trail.
The new bikeway – to be designed in 2016 and built in 2017 – is a significant addition to the City's cycling infrastructure and strengthens the network of existing routes by connecting the Waterfront Trail and the Provincial Cycling Network routes that enhance the commuter and recreational experience.
Preliminary drawing were presented at an October 25 open house
Revised drawings of the bikeway and multi-use path were presented for review and comment at the March 28 open house.
