The city of Montreal just announced their plans to build a massive urban walking path.  According the Montreal Gazette The project will consist of a 3.8 kilometer long pedestrian pathway featuring widened sidewalks and extra greenery. The path is expected to be completed by 201,7 just in time for Montreal's 375th birthday and will cost $44 million. Construction is expected to start next winter.

The city claims that the pathway will feature “passages rich in experiences, showcasing the history, the heritage and the cultural aspects of the neighborhoods” As a bonus, during the construction of the path, the city will be updating the water mains as well as the sewage pipes on Dr. Penfield and Sherbrooke Street.

The path will stretch from the south end of the St. Lawrence River, run through Phillips Square, along St-Catherines and up McGill College Avenue, then along Sherbrooke and all the way up Pine until it connects to the Mount-Royal entryway. The plan might even call for the east side of McGill College Avenue to become a permanent pedestrian walkway.
