I am pleased to report that through stimulus funding made available by the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP), the Multi-Use Pathway at Fentiman Park will be replaced this year. The asphalt will be replaced on the main path in addition to the side paths, which lead to Hemlo Crescent, Macassa Circle, and Highmont Court.
Construction will begin in early September for approximately four weeks. During construction, the path will be closed, and pedestrians and cyclists will be detoured via Goldridge Drive to Kanata Avenue. As part of this detour, permanent painted bike lanes and signage will be added to both sides of Goldridge Drive from Fentiman Park to Kanata Avenue.

This will be an improved pathway for both pedestrians and cyclists. The addition of permanent bike lanes on this stretch of Goldridge Drive is a welcome addition to improve cycling safety as well. I will share the construction schedule and further details as they become available.
