Project Information

This project will provide a separated off-road active corridor connecting users between the existing trail connections in Old Oak Park and the trail between Creekside Drive and Birchmount Drive. To ensure you are seeing all the project images, please make sure you are on the Project Information page and not the preview pane.

Multi-use Path

The existing sidewalk on the south side (the same side as St. Nicholas school) will be replaced with a new asphalt multi-use path, a distance of approximately 450 m.

Laurelwood Drive multi-use trail connection plan, showing the existing multi-use trail through Old Oak Park, and the planned 3 m wide asphalt connection along the south side of Laurelwood Drive to the existing multi-use trail west of Birchmount Drive. Proposed work includes an uncontrolled pedestrian crossing of Laurelwood Drive at Old Oak Park, a proposed concrete landing pad for GRT bus stop on the north side of Laurelwood between Brookmill Crescent and Holly View Place, an improved school and pedestrian crossing at Holly View Place across from St. Nicholas, and another uncontrolled pedestrian crossing at the existing trail connection west of Birchmount Drive.

Typical cross-section for the Laurelwood Drive multi-use trail. From the centreline of Laurelwood Drive, the existing median will remain, with an existing 3.25 m vehicle lane and existing 2 m buffered on-road bike lane, concrete curb and gutters, proposed sod boulevard and proposed 3 m asphalt multi-use trail. The proposed multi-use trail will painted for two-way directional use for both pedestrians and cyclists.


To meet the timelines of the Investing in Canada Program (ICIP) COVID-19 Resilience Stream grant process, the design was advanced and completed at the end of 2021. The design was tendered early 2022 and construction is scheduled to take place between July and August 2022, with completion targeted before the start of the new school term.

Prior to construction, you may see city teams on site to stake out approximate property boundaries, complete preliminary relocation of utilities and prepare for the contractor to begin work. Further updates will be provided closer to construction.

These improvements were recommended as a priority project in the Transportation Master Plan 2020 Update, approved by Council in April 2021.
