The City of Burlington is building a new multi-use pathway in the downtown which will ultimately connect the Centennial Multi-Use Pathway to Brant Street. This pedestrian facility will accommodate both people and cyclists safely and provide access to adjacent walkways, shops and restaurants along its length. Paving materials, textures, urban trees, shade structures and site furnishings will be used along the route to make it friendly for all users and abilities.
A public meeting has been called to gather input on features and connections along the pathway.
Date: May 16, 7:30pm
Location: Art Gallery of Burlington, 1333 Lakeshore Road
In late March it was announced that the City of Burlington is to receive both Canada 150 and Public Transit Infrastructure Fund (PTIF) financial support for the design and construction of this project. As a result, timelines have been adjusted to meet the deadlines of the funding criteria (March 2018). The City and the Burlington Downtown Business Association are also contributing to the project.
The first leg of the project will be constructed through the north end of the lot on the north side of Village Square between Pearl and Elizabeth streets. Overall there will be some reduction of spaces in the parking lots, yet to be quantified, and staff is working on various ways to add parking supply in the general area to compensate. More details to come.
