Kelly's Brook Shared-Use Pathway

Kelly's Brook Shared Use Pathway

Kelly's Brook Shared-Use-Path is the first catalyst project coming from the Bike St John's Master Plan. The shared-use path will extend from King's Bridge Road to Columbus Drive. It is mostly in place as a granular walking trail today, linking several neighbourhoods through an important east-west greenway that largely parallels Empire Avenue (between King's Bridge Rd and Carpasian Rd, the route will be along Empire Ave). Its goal is to provide an attractive and continuous 4.8 km recreation corridor and active transportation city-centre route, connecting popular destinations and amenities along the way. The shared-use path is proposed for people of all ages and abilities, using all forms of active transportation, including walking, running, biking, and rolling.

The City of St. John's has engaged a highly qualified team of professionals to complete the detailed design of the shared-use path while working closely with city staff. The design team is providing a series of public engagement opportunities for residents and stakeholders to share their input to inform design decisions around elements such as lighting, surface materials, path alignment, trailhead and rest areas, wayfinding, and other features that emerge during the process.

If you are interested in learning more and would like to add your ideas, opinions and concerns, why not participate in one of two virtual public workshops planned for next week?

Each workshop will provide an overview of the project and opportunities to voice your feedback, ideas and concerns.
