With an early phase of the North Highway Connector Project wrapped up a section of a Red Deer walking trail is set to reopen.

The section of the North Bank Trail from Three Mile Bend, the off-leash dog park, north to the River Bend Recreation Area will re-open this week.

The trail has been sporadically closed over the last year as part of the highway connector project.

As part of the project, the banks of the Red Deer river were modified to accommodate a utility crossing and a future bridge during the closure. Now construction is complete in the area and the trail is open for recreational use.

When the North Highway Connector project is complete it will provide a bypass route around the east side of the city, linking Hwy 11A to Hwy 11, 595 (Delburne Road) and Hwy 2.
