Temporary closures on the Voyageurs Pathway - November 29 to December 21

There will be temporary closures on the Voyageurs Pathway beside Fournier Boulevard, from November 29 to December 21, 2018, between 7 am and 5 pm, to allow the removal of invasive species. A few trees will also be removed.

Signage will indicate that work is being carried out, and workers will ensure the safety of pathway users in the work area.

The National Capital Commission urges motorists and pathway users to exercise caution, respect working crews and equipment, and obey signage and flag persons on-site.

This work is part of the NCC invasive species management strategy and emerald ash borer management program and follows the removal of trees affected by the emerald ash borer. Invasive species will also be removed in the Leamy Lake area, but the work will not require closures.

Next steps:

In 2019, following the invasive species removal, the NCC will be replanting trees and shrubs.
