NOTICE: Millennium Trail upgrade resumes April 9

Upgrades to the Millennium Trail will resume on Tuesday, April 9.

• To maintain sightlines 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 will begin with brush removal on Tuesday, 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.

• More information about the Millennium Trail Upgrade Project can be found on the County website or on Facebook.
