Kingston – The Cataraqui Region Conservation Authority (CRCA) wishes to let members of the public and interested stakeholders know that a portion of the Cataraqui Trail is set to be closed for repairs and revitalization work, beginning Friday, Dec. 8.
The section of trail receiving this needed attention is between Chaffey’s Locks Road and Marina Road in the Township of Rideau Lakes, and it will be closed to the public while the work is taking place as the section is very narrow and passes through am environmentally sensitive wetland.
According to CRCA Operations staff, the trail will be resurfaced with a solid base layer and top dressing in two of the lowest, wettest areas, which are typically flooded every spring.
It is expected that the work will take approximately one week.
The Cataraqui Trail is a year-round, shared-use recreation trail running approximately 103 kilometres from Smiths Falls in the east to Strathcona (just outside Greater Napanee) in the west. While the CRCA is the owner, the management and development of the trail is taken care of by the Cataraqui Trail Management Board (CTMB). The Management Board has representatives from trail user groups, municipalities, landowners and the CRCA.
