Millennium Trail upgrades resumed

Upgrades to the Millennium Trail have resumed.

Work scheduled includes:

To maintain sight lines for oncoming traffic and a clear trail for unobstructed passage, the brush at the side of the eight-foot-wide Millennium Trail will be cut back three feet on each side. To improve the surface of the trail for the benefit of all users, construction crews then will be grading, applying 6” of limestone screenings, and rolling the surface of the trail.

This phase of upgrades will occur between Station Road in Hillier and Fort Kente Road (County Road 64) in Carrying Place.Upgrades on this 14.5 km stretch of the trail began with brush removal on April 9 followed by grading after the half-load limit is lifted in early May. Work is expected to continue for approximately 10 weeks.

Sections of the trail will be closed during the upgrade work and will be marked appropriately.

The Millennium Trail Rehabilitation Ad-Hoc Committee, which includes representatives from the County of Prince Edward and the Prince Edward County Millennium Trail Committee, is facilitating the project.

The biggest reasons there exists a border with the USA is environmental. Canadians generally have a deeper understanding and respect for the environment within a balance for health and safety sanitation. Ontario is a northern lake region, a diverse eco system, with land suitable for agriculture. AMERICAN style big roads, sprawling suburbs and import dependency is not encourage where the land is valuable for environmental reasons. The blue jay is a natural inhabitants of the Great lakes region, a number of other colorful birds are natural to the environment, they live outside in their natural environment, that’s normal outside of deserts. It’s recommended to be able to live around nature peacefully in order to be Canadian. Ontario is comparable Oragon or northern florida in the USA with a European influence. Just passing by…be a Great organization!
