The County of Renfrew is moving ahead on upgrading sections of the Algonquin Trail as planned. Last December the Trail saw three opening ceremonies in Arnprior, Renfrew, and Petawawa and the plan continues to be to upgrade and open sections in an outward direction from these urban areas to close any gaps as funding develops over the coming years. At a recent meeting, staff presented the 2018 work plan for trail upgrades throughout the County. Several sections of the discontinued CP Rail corridor will be improved for use later this summer with major assistance from the Ontario Municipal Commuter Cycling program. These sections include: in Arnprior the completion of the trail from John Street east to the Lanark/Ottawa border in McNab/Braeside – From Division Street to Sand Point, in Horton – From the bridge over the Bonnechere River to Cotieville, in Whitewater – Through the village of Cobden, from Astrolabe Road to Turcotte Road … in Laurentian Valley – From TV Tower Road to Forest Lea Road (between Pembroke and Petawawa) … in Pembroke – From Pembroke Street West through to TV Tower Road in Laurentian Hills – From the Village of Chalk River (Main Street), north towards Wylie Road and in Renfrew work will be limited due to the Downtown Revitalization efforts. The County of Renfrew is reminding residents that only certain sections are currently open for public use. For more information you can visit www.countyofrenfrew.on.ca
