The City is planning improvements to the Beltline Trail entrance at Moore Avenue. This project provides an opportunity to replace the aging infrastructure and will result in a safer, more accessible route for pedestrians and cyclists while minimizing negative impacts on the surrounding Environmentally Significant Area (ESA).

Project Timeline

  • July to October 2020: Detailed design to be finalized.
  • November to December 2020: Construction to begin; trail to be closed during construction, with detour signage posted.
  • December 2020 to May 2021: Trail open to the public; construction suspended during winter months.
  • May to June 2021: Construction to resume; trail to be closed during construction; detour signage to be re-posted.

The timeline is subject to change.

The improvements to the Beltline Trail entrance at Moore Avenue is a project in partnership with the City of Toronto and the Toronto and Region Conservation Authority (TRCA).

The state of good repair enhancement will realign the trail to form a switchback configuration, resulting in a gentler grade and a safer, more accessible experience for trail users. The trail will be resurfaced between the switchback and the Heath Street pedestrian bridge and a rest area overlooking the Beltline Pond will be included in the design.

The Beltline Trail improvements are being coordinated with other projects in the area. The project was not able to proceed until the TRCA stream restoration work was completed in summer 2020. A new pedestrian crossing signal will be installed across Moore Avenue, from Mount Pleasant Cemetery, in coordination with the trail improvements.
