County Considering Enhancing Bike Lanes Thanks to Provincial Funds

Portion of Bike Trail Could Be A Former Train Track

Nothing written in stone, but the County of Simcoe is mulling over enhanced commuter bike trails across the land. Six different projects being considered, thanks to a 1.6 million dollar cheque from the province to go towards bike related¬†infrastructure. Part of the new trail system could even include former portions of the Barrie Collingwood Railway. The county purchased Collingwood’s portion a few months ago, and may put the unused portion around the Angus are to good use. The county will take another look at this one with a more critical eye come January 23rd, but expect to have these bike lanes serve commuters and enhance the existing bike trails across Simcoe County.
