In July 2009 Transportation Services was awarded funding through the Recreation Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program to develop multi-use trails within hydro and rail corridors across the City. These projects will be managed as a joint initiative between Transportation Services, and Parks, Forestry & Recreation.
The RInC funding received by Transportation Services will be used to develop new/upgraded multi-use trails. A total of seven multi-use trail projects will be developed within the Finch Hydro Corridor, Gatineau Hydro Corridor, CN Leaside and Scarborough Pit Spur (former rail corridors). This will add approximately 30 kilometers of new and 4 km of upgraded off-road bike trails to the City's Bikeway Network and represents the largest expansion of the City's trail system in a single year.
About this Segment
Finch Hydro Corridor Dufferin Avenue to Yonge St.
This project runs through Wards 10 and 23. The Multi-Use Path will be about 3.5 m in width and paved with asphalt.
This segment includes new trail along the Finch Hydro Corridor, the route will include use of existing park pathway through G. Ross Lord Park.
New amenities will include benches, bike parking, garbage receptacles, landscaping, and light fixtures.
Public Information Sessions
Given the tight timelines of these trail projects, under the RInC funding agreement each project had one public information session to inform the community of the trail project underway and present the detailed designs for the trail. These sessions were organized for March - May 2010.
