Major upgrades are coming to a busy part of the Meewasin Trail.
The MVA said this is the busiest stretch of the trail, used equally by cyclists and pedestrians, something that becomes challenging in narrower areas.
“We want to widen it, to add lighting where we need to and really make it more welcoming for everybody and fully accessible for anybody regardless of their ability,” said Alan Otterbein with the MVA.
Otterbein said he expects the project to cost around $10 million.
Other upgrades in the southwest and River Heights areas — including more lighting, stairs, and traffic control — are expected to cost over $2 million total.
There is no firm date for when the work will begin. The MVA is looking for public feedback on all these projects.
