Hydro Corridor Multi-Use Trail Construction Update

I mentioned Cyclometer, the City’s cycling newsletter in Monday’s post about the nice maps and photos compiled of biking infrastructure projects started or completed in 2010, and thought I’d highlight another item from the latest issue, namely the construction progress of multi-use trails in Hydro and Rail Corridors in Scarborough and North York.

I’ll paste the text of the Cyclometer item here for you, as they’ve already done a great job of summarizing it:

Substantial progress has been made on all of the Multi-use paths being constructed in the Finch Hydro Corridor, Gatineau Hydro Corridor, CN Leaside former rail corridor, and Scarborough Pit Spur former rail corridor.

Cyclists who live near these projects have already begun riding on finished portions as they are completed. These projects are scheduled to be completed in full by spring 2011.

I’m looking forward to trying all of these out… is there one that stands out on your “To Ride” List?
