Yes! First, according to Robin King, the city’s Transportation Engineer, the section of the Virginia River Trail from Windsor Lake to Penney Crescent has been freshly widened to accomodate walkers and cyclists alike. Next, as part of the off-road component of the Cycling Plan, the trail from Captain Whealen Drive running along Columbus Drive and Prince Philip Drive is “nearing completion.” And finally, for the on-road section of the Plan, which includes sharrows and bike lanes on select roads, they’re moving as quick as they can given the lousy weather. “We’ve been delayed by almost three weeks because of the rain,” says King. “So, we’re probably looking at the third week in August for completion. If it keeps raining, then it’ll be September, but I’m hoping that the third week in August will be the official launch.” It’s good news, folks.
