Path Reopening Delayed

The Lower Don Trail was closed in May 2006 to perform some critical construction work on the Lakeshore Railway Bridge. This work is needed to facilitate the floodproofing of the West Don Lands that have been under threat ever since Hurricane Hazel.

As with any complex project there is the possibility of delays and this one is no exception. The latest word is that the proposed reopening of May 2007 has been pushed back to July. I don't know whether that will be July 1 or July 30 but I hope it is closer to the former. I miss the convenient entrance to the Don Valley trail system that the southern entrance provides. If I hear anything new I'll pass it along.
