Chorley Trail Update

Many residents have been closely following
the development of the switchback trail
connecting Chorley Park and the Beltline Trail.
On April 2nd, the City’s contractors
re-commenced work. They have estimated a
6-8 week construction schedule, depending
upon weather conditions, which will take us to
somewhere between Mayfair and the Victoria
Day long weekend. The City’s goal is to allow
for the site to be re-opened in early summer.
The City has once again closed access to the
site, as well as to the Beltline, for the
construction period. The “Trail Closed” signs
that have become familiar to many have
reappeared in Chorley Park and at other
access points.
The NRRA, alongside many residents, has
offered to support the replanting and site
rehabilitation which will follow construction.
The City will do some replanting of larger trees
this summer and rehabilitation will continue
through 2018 and 2019 to restore the site.
Please mark your calendars for a community
planting event on Saturday, September 29th.
We will provide an update once arrangements
for the event become formalized. Updates will
also be provided through the NRRA
Community Page on Facebook.
