Greenway Improvements Underway

Posted on September 6, 2017

Essex Region – The Essex Region Conservation Authority will be closing sections of the Chrysler Canada Greenway over the next four weeks as grading and resurfacing improvements to the trail take place.

“Thanks to support from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, we will be undertaking a complete resurfacing of the nearly 50 kilometers of Greenway stretching from Tecumseh to Harrow, through Kingsville and ultimately to Ruthven,” reports Kevin Money, ERCA’s Director of Conservation Services.  During this work, sections of the greenway will be closed.  “As grading is undertaken and new gravel installed, there will be some soft areas and it could be quite dusty until it settles,” Money adds.  He urges trail users to exercise caution over these next few weeks, and to be sure to respect the sections of the trail that are closed.

This most recent project is another boost for trails in the Essex region.  In April, the 22 kilometre Cypher Systems Group Greenway, which travels from Essex to Amherstburg, was opened.  As well, construction of the Rotary (1918) Centennial Hub, which will connect the Herb Gray Parkway trails, Town of Tecumseh, Town of LaSalle and Chrysler Canada Greenway trail systems together, is underway.

For more than four decades, Essex Region Conservation has been sustaining and enriching the environment of the Windsor-Essex-Pelee Island region to ensure it is the Place for Life.
