New projects

Vickers-Carrick multi-use bridge

With financial help from the Province of Ontario's Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling fund, the City is beginning the design process for a new pedestrian and cyclist bridge that crosses the McIntyre Floodway. This Vickers-Carrick bridge project is being designed to connect Vickers St. S. and Carrick St.

McIntyre River multi-use bridge

The Province of Ontario is providing financial assistance to the City of Thunder Bay to build a new multi-use bridge through the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program (OMCIP). The new bridge will cross over the McIntyre River at Confederation College and will be located near the current Nakina Drive Bridge.

The McIntyre River Multi-Use Bridge will make it safer and more comfortable for people walking and biking, as the bridge is wider and away from car and bus traffic. 


The City is also working on a new Wayfinding Plan! This new plan aims to create a wayfinding signage system that directs people to primary destinations. An active transportation wayfinding portion is also being planned to help pedestrians, cyclists, and other active modes to navigate the city. Elements of wayfinding include: making maps, street signs, trail signs, and other information easier to access.
