Portion of McIntyre River Recreation Trail Closed for Work

August 19, 2010 – As part of the City-wide Recreation Trail Rehabilitation Project, work is expected to begin today on the realignment and reconstruction of the trail along the McIntyre River, located at Lakehead University between Lakehead University Drive and Riverside Drive. 

The section of trail will be resurfaced and have changes to the alignment near Riverside Drive. These changes will increase safety at the downhill corner for the multiple uses of the trail. The scope of work involves tree cutting, base excavation, placement of geotextile, and granular and asphalt material.

Work is scheduled for the next two weeks, and during this time the trail will be closed to ensure public safety. Residents are asked to adhere to all signage and barricades.

An alternate route to this section of recreation trail is to use Reaume Street to Central Avenue then to 10th Avenue/ 8th Avenue, and on to Riverside Drive.
