Cornwall Recreation Path Extension

recpathCyclists and walkers will have an extra 2.4 kilometres of pathway to access in the city thanks to a $325,000 grant from the province.

The grant, through the Ontario Municipal Cycling Infrastructure Program, will be matched by City of Cornwall coffers to undertake the $700,000 extension.

The work, to start later this year, will continue the path near Optimist Park, run east under the McConnell Avenue overpass, proceed southeast to Twelfth Street and east to Virginia Drive.

“This would have the effect of creating a near continuous ‘urban loop’ of the off-road recreational path,” said Steve Wintle, the city’s manager of infrastructure planning.

The urban loop is a key part of the Bicycle and Pedestrian Master Plan, which guides city efforts to make the community more cycling and pedestrian friendly.
