Cyclists and pedestrians alike will have a new pathway in Belleville’s west end this summer.

Some clear-out work is underway this week, making way for the pedestrian/cycling pathway on Bridge Street West.

Manager of Engineering Ray Ford.

The pathway will also be built on the other side.

Ford tells Quinte News, “We’ll see lots of activity along there over the next six to eight weeks, as they shape the boulevard up and get it ready for paving. I’m looking to the end of June to have that project completed.”

Last fall, city council awarded the contract to Cooney Excavating Limited at $480,000.

It’s part of a total of $2.8 million to build a pedestrian/cycling network across the city.
