Mile Drive Trail Paving Job To Commence In September

Owen Sound | by Matt Hermiz  

Popular trail at Harrison Park is being resurfaced.

A popular walking trail at Harrison Park in Owen Sound is going to get a fresh pave next month.

City council recently awarded a $389,000 contract to E.C King Contracting for Owen Sound's 2020 asphalt resurfacing program. The $100,000 Mile Drive Trail paving job is part of it.

It was the lowest of two compliant bids the city received.

The portion of the Mile Drive Trail being resurfaced is currently gravel and runs through a forested area along the east side of the Sydenham River. The trail then crosses a bridge back over the river and loops back through the west side of Harrison Park.

Owen Sound's Director of Public Works and Engineering Dennis Kefalas expects work to get underway sometime after Labour Day.

The trail resurfacing is being undertaken to improve year-round access, accessibility and reduce ongoing maintenance.

Other parts of the city's 2020 asphalt paving program:

  • 4th Avenue West from 23rd to 24th Streets West
  • 4th Avenue West from 28th to 29th Streets West
  • 5th Avenue West from 13th Street West to the North End
  • 6th Avenue West from 10th Street West to the North End
  • 6th Avenue East between 9th and 10th Streets East
  • 6th Street A East from west of 7th to Bayview School
  • 9th Street East between 6th and 7th Avenues East
  • 28th Street West from 4th to 5th Avenues West
