Get your hiking shoes out and your bikes tuned up. The Gordie Howe International Bridge will be the first international border crossing to join the Trans Canada Trail - a 28,000 km trail network across the country.
Trail users will be able to cross toll-free using the multi-use path on the bridge, which also connects to the Iron Belle Trail, the Great Lakes Way and the Joe Louis Greenway in Detroit, Michigan.
The multi-use path will accommodate pedestrian and cyclist traffic, and will be 2.5 kilometres/1.5 miles in length and 3.6 metres/11.8 feet wide. The multi-use path will be separated from vehicular traffic by concrete barriers, and include other safety features like emergency call buttons, lighting and means restriction fencing.
That’s not all! The project team wants to hear what you think about the future operation of the multi-use path.
The project team is seeking public input on the operations of its multi-use path. Feedback is being accepted through a survey and in-person at upcoming Public Information Meetings taking place on March 19, 2024, in Detroit and March 21, 2024, in Windsor.
The information gathered will help inform future policies and will consider operational items related to access, public safety and user experience.
