Red River Floodway Expansion Project: C14 Service Access Road Construction
BUILDING RECREATION AT THE FLOODWAY: DUFF ROBLIN PARKWAY TRAIL
Duff Roblin Parkway Trail is a development strategy for the expanded floodway. The primary purpose of the trail is to act as a service access road to support the emergency and operational needs of the floodway. When not in use for floodway purposes, the public will be able to use the floodway service access as a recreational trail for pedestrian and non-motorized activities. Chabot’s work on the trail included constructing 53km of new granular and paved pathway with parking/staging areas; extending from St. Mary’s Road Bridge to Lockport and including a 2.8km paved trail into Bird’s Hill Provincial Park.
