Name New Trail in Honour of Kindergarten Teacher Jay Keddy

We want to name the new bike trail the Keddy Access Trail (KAT) or another similar name (Keddy Trail, Keddy Route) in memory of school teacher Jay Keddy.

Jay Keddy, 53 was killed in December 2015 while legally riding his bicycle up the Claremont Access in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

New Multi-Use Trail Begins Construction 2019

The province and city has fully funded the cost of the new Claremont Multi-Use Trail that begins construction in 2019. This is a new safe walking & biking route between Hamilton Mountain and Lower City.

The Claremont Trail Planning Drawings includes concrete barrier protection to protect pedestrians & cyclists from motor traffic. It has many midpoint connections to Southam Park, Escarpment Rail Trail, Arkledun Avenue, John Street, St. Joseph, and extension to Mohawk College.
