Courtenay, British Columbia, April 30, 2024 —  Residents will soon enjoy improved access to extensive pathways and community services, thanks to a combined investment of more than $6.8 million from the federal and provincial governments, along with the City of Courtenay.

Announced by Minister Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister Anne Kang, and Mayor Bob Wells, this project will provide cyclists, pedestrians and other non-motorized transportation users with a key connection from the bottom of 6th Street to Simms Millennium Park and the extensive trail networks on both sides of the Courtenay River. 

The 6th Street Active Transportation Bridge project will construct a new four-meter-wide river crossing, which will create a safe and accessible alternative route that will further encourage sustainable and active commuting options for residents.

These investments are part of Canada’s National Active Transportation Strategy, which aims to create and improve pathways, bike lanes, and pedestrian bridges all over the country. It’s a big step towards healthier living and creating tight-knit communities, making a better-connected Canada for us all.
