$500k for another trail in FSJ

Fort St. John is receiving almost $495,000 for a new one kilometer bike trail, to run alongside on the North end of 100th street.

Prince George / Peace Region MP Jay Hill and Minister of Energy, Mines and Petroleum Blair Lekstrom announced on Thursday, the Federal and Provincial governments are investing $6.5 million for infrastructure and recreation projects in the Peace Region.

Mayor Bruce Lantz says the addition will be connected to the current trail system, providing a safer route for bikers and pedestrians. [asset|aid=1207|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=5fcfe85232b761a1ada690662197b752-Lantz-trails-1_1_Pub.mp3]

He says local contractors will be creating the paved path.

Mr. Hill adds, construction for the trail will begin this spring, and will be finished by fall. [asset|aid=1208|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=5fcfe85232b761a1ada690662197b752-Hill-trails-1_1_Pub.mp3]

Every town in the Peace is receiving money from the Federal and Provincial Government, and Hill says all of the projects will be completed by fall.

Meanwhile, Blair Lekstrom announced Fort St. John will received $13 million for this year’s Fair Share agreement.
