A pedestrian and bicycle pathway between the communities of Lethbridge and Coaldale has gotten the support of City Council.
Lethbridge City Council giving its support for a pedestrian and bicycle pathway from Henderson Lake to Coaldale. Council members voted unanimously Monday (Sept. 25) to provide a letter of support for the project and a commitment in principle to bring a point of connection to the intersection of 10th avenue and 43rd street. Presenter for the LINK Regional Pathway Society, Alvin Fritz, says the project was initially inspired by a collective concern for public safety ... with small shoulders and multiple vehicles on Highway 3 and Jail Road. He told Council this will provide a big level of safety and economic well-being. The 15 km trail would run from Henderson Lake, through Lethbridge County along the St. Mary River Irrigation District canal system, and end at the Birds of Prey Centre outside of Coaldale. The estimated cost of the project is $4.4 million. - Tina Giesbrecht
