Kawartha Trans Canada Trail West Section nearing Completion

The construction of the trail from the hwy 7 overpass west toSimcoe St. is now complete and the trail bed is topped with limestone and graded making for a great trail surface. This section is still under construction and will not be open for public use until the gates are installed and the bridge over the Mariposa Brook is repaired and decked. The new gates will be installed starting this week. The bridge repairs and decking over Mariposa Brook should be completed by the end of the week, September 11.

The extension of the trail east of hwy 7 overpass to Angeline St. is almost complete and should be topped and graded by the end of the week, September 4th. Again, this section is not open to the public until the gates are installed.

The new trail across the campus property of Fleming College was completed on August 28th. The trail will not be opened however, until the bridges over the ditch areas adjacent to the roads are built. This work will be done by the college students this fall as part of the Recreation Trails Program. Expected to be completed by mid October, 2009.
