Residents rejoiced as paving on the new trail system was completed in the hamlet of Cardiff.
 
With a small amount of concrete work remaining, one part of the massive re-engineered roadway is nearly complete.
 
"It's going to make the community look even better than it does, it connects users more efficiently with Cardiff Park, it just increases safe movement of our residents," said Sturgeon County senior communications officer, Sheila Moore.
 
Before the project began, residents would walk on the small shouldered road, creating a safety risk.
 
"They anticipate another two to three weeks for this last stage," said Moore of the paving process about to get underway on the main road.
 
Soon, residents will have a trail to walk, cycle and jog their way to Cardiff Park and the local golf course.
