New Trail Exit Construction

The proposed project would involve the construction of a new recreational trail exit for an existing recreational trail at East White Hills, St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. The project will bring the trail exit up to accepted standards using sustainable building practices to mitigate environmental impacts. The new, approximately 100 meters long, trail exit would egress off of the Boulder Hill trail and join up with the Intake Access road. It would be constructed of rock and soil between April and November 2024. The old trail exit would be decommissioned.
