Investments Being Made to Upgrade Trails in St. John’s
Funding has been announced for a project to upgrade and connect a trail to a continuous 4.8-kilometre active transportation route in St. John’s.
The federal, provincial, and municipal governments will contribute to the project.
The project will see the construction of the Kelly’s Brook Shared-Use Path by upgrading and connecting existing segments of a trail between Columbus Drive and Kings Bridge Road that parallels Empire Avenue to create a safer, inclusive pedestrian and cycling route.
The Government of Canada is investing more than $1,113,600 million in this project. The Government of Newfoundland and Labrador is providing over $755,600, while the City of St. John’s is contributing more than $377,900.
Construction is expected to start in 2021.
