Portions of Galloping Goose Trail to close Monday for construction

This section of the Galloping Goose Trail has been gravel since construction started at the McKenzie interchange. A series of closures in the fall of 2019 will allow contractors to re-pave the trail.

Construction on the Galloping Goose Trail will close off portions of the trail starting Monday, as part of the ongoing work around the McKenzie Interchange.

The Ministry of Transportation is advising cyclists, bike commuters and pedestrian users of the trail that sections at the McKenzie interchange construction site will be closed from October 28 through to the end of November.

The Ministry says that they are committed to minimizing delays, and will not allow lane closures for construction on Sundays, statutory holidays, or during the hours of 5:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Work may continue throughout the night, but the Ministry says every effort will be made to keep noise minimal.

The first closure starting on Monday will see the trail heading westbound detoured near Interurban Rd. onto Burnside Rd. West. The trail will then re-connect at Grange Rd. The HWY #1 northbound bus stop connects with the trail at McKenzie and Burnside Junction.

During the trail closures, detours will be marked with signs and traffic controllers. The Ministry says that trail closures will allow crew to pave the trail and will minimize nighttime disruptions.
