Trans Canada Construction Begins!

The construction of the westerly portion of the KTCT on the abandoned railway line from Durham Road 2 easterly to the Highway 7 overpass west of Lindsay has begun. The contractor, "Evansgolf Corporation" out of Brechin has completed the brushing and clearing of the trail to a width of 4 metres. The contractor is now in the process of bulldozing the trail bed to clear it of the remaining grass and vegetation and preparing the 3 metre wide trail bed. The bulldozing work started at the Durham Road 2 (Simcoe Street) and as of August 5th was completed easterly to White Rock Road. It is anticipated that the bulldozing will continue for the next week. Once the clearing is complete the contractor will be laying down the 3 metre wide trail bed made of crushed limestone.

During the construction period the trail is closed to the public and will not be opened until all the construction is complete.

In addition to the construction on the abandoned railway bed portion of the trail, the contractor will soon be starting the construction of that portion of the KTCT on the Fleming College property east of Angeline St. in Lindsay.

Stay tuned for more updates as construction continues.
