Project Update – May 2014 www.toronto.ca/eastdontrail
Highlights of Work Completed
Since March 2013, fieldwork has been taking place in the study area. The project team was planning to have all work completed this spring, however with a long and snowy winter survey crews experienced some difficulty getting to the site. The goal now is to complete field work:
· topographical surveys and tree inventory in June; and
· geotechnical surveys later this year.
Within the study area you may continue to see temporary orange painted markings and/or stakes in the ground. These markings will remain in place until the design work for the study has been completed.
Before selecting a preferred trail alignment for the next round of public consultation, the project team addressed requests from different stakeholders for a review of additional trail alignments in:
- Area 1 (north end of the study area near Charles Sauriol Conservation Area);
- Area 2 (middle of study near the Gatineau Hydro Corridor and Flemingdon Park Golf Club).
Next Opportunity for Public Input June 24
Design concepts for the preferred trail alignment will be presented at the next public event on June 24, 2013. Design concepts will show the physical features (e.g. slope) and potential impacts (e.g. trees) of the trail. Join us to learn more, speak with members of the project team, and be part of the conversation to select the best options for the preferred trail alignment.
