Rehabilitation begins on bridge along Strathcona Island Park Loop

Medicine Hat – Work on the bridge along the Strathcona Island Park Loop trail is scheduled to begin on Tuesday September 13.

This bridge and trail connect the parking lot of the boat launch to the western areas of the park. The bridge is being strengthened to facilitate maintenance activity on the trail.

A section of the trail will be closed to park visitors due to the ongoing construction activity in the area. A map of this area has been shared on the City’s Facebook page. Access to the boat launch will be maintained, however a section of the parking lot may be closed to allow crews adequate room to work. Please follow all construction signs in the area.

The trail and bridge are expected to reopen on Friday, September 30.

The City of Medicine Hat would like to thank residents for their patience and understanding as the necessary improvements are completed.
