New projects in our city

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 new bridge is being designed to connect Vickers St. S. and Carrick St.

Here is the project website!

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 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.

Learn more about the McIntyre River Multi-Use Bridge.


The City is also working on a new Pedestrian and Cyclist Wayfinding Plan! This new Plan will help you get around actively by making maps, street signs, trail signs, and other information easier to access. Find out about the Wayfinding Plan.
