This is the third phase of the Lake-to-Lake bike route.

The contract for the construction, worth $4.1 million, was been awarded to Grizzly Excavating, who built the previous phase of the project.

As part of the 2022 budget, $4.7 million was earmarked to be funded from the city’s electrical reserve.

The third route will travel from Fairview Road along Duncan Avenue, before turning back south to travel along Atkinson Street until Kinney Avenue.

Construction will be complete in fall.
