Riverfront Trail detour starting February 12, 2020

February 7, 2020
News Release

On February 12, 2020, a section of the Riverfront Trail will be closed for up to two years to accommodate Phase I and II of the G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital Redevelopment.

To ensure the safety of trail users, the City has created two detour options. Detour signage will be in place and direct users to Reid St with options to cross at Carson Ave and Front St or St Laurent Ave and Front St. View the detour map below. The closure will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

If timing permits, there is a possibility to reopen the trail between the two phases of the project. Watch for updates on the City website and trail signage.

The Northern Health G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital project replaces the emergency department and redevelops the Intensive Care Unit. For more information about the hospital project and construction updates, visit Northern Health at
