Section of waterfront trail to close for a year
A section of the Waterfront Trail is closing as of Monday for construction and will remain closed until the end of 2019, the city has announced.
The construction is happening at Pier 8 so that crews can reconstruct the shorewall and begin construction of the Pier 8 Promenade Park, also known as Copps Pier.
The city says the section of the trail beginning at the foot of Catharine Street North and stretching north toward the water and then west toward the Discovery Centre will be closed for pedestrians and cyclists in both directions.
It's expected that section of the trail will be completely closed to the public until the end of 2019, the city says.
