Portion of Quesnel’s Riverwalk trail to be closed for two years starting Oct. 13

Detours will be in place to accommodate construction at G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital

Thanksgiving weekend will be the last time for two years that residents can fully enjoy the Riverfront Trail in downtown Quesnel.

Starting Oct. 13, a portion of the Riverwalk will be closed as the second phase of construction at G.R. Baker Memorial Hospital begins.

It’s the same section of trail which was closed during the first phase of construction.

“To ensure the safety of trail users, the City has created two detour options,” a news release from the city reads. “Detour signage will be in place and direct users to Reid Street, with options to cross at Carson Avenue and Front Street or St. Laurent Avenue and Front Street.”

The closure will be in place 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Construction at the hospital will renovate the intensive care unit and emergency department.
