New pedestrian bridge for Erie Park neighbhourhood

The City of Oshawa has announced the opening of a newly constructed pedestrian bridge in Erie Park (43 Erie Street) in the city’s Ward 5 area.

The bridge connects pedestrians and cyclists to the city’s trail system, said a city statement.

It noted project highlights as:

  • New three-metre wide galvanized steel bridge with safety railings
  • Creek bank erosion measures
  • New trees and shrubs
  • Repaved pathway with energy-efficient LED lighting leading up to the bridge

Further improvements for the area are planned this summer, including additional erosion control protection along the Oshawa Creek and the replacement of the existing stone retaining wall adjacent to the creek edge that is north of the bridge, the statement said.

This project was approved as part of the city’s capital budget process, it added.
