Pouce Coupe is one of 25 communities throughout British Columbia that will receive more than $6 million in BikeBC funding this year.
$24,750 has been awarded to help fund a 2m wide, 0.5km long separated bike path, from 52nd Avenue at Ball Diamond Road, to the railroad tracks.
The funding comes way of BikeBC, which is the Province’s cost-sharing program that helps communities build cycling projects that attract and support commuter and tourism cyclists.
BC on the Move, the government’s new 10-year plan for the improvement of transportation, has committed $18 million over the next three years to the BikeBC program.
BC on the Move also just announced funding for regional airports, which includes $82,311 towards repairs at the Dawson Creek Regional Airport.
Other communities receiving funding include Burnaby, Langley, Kamloops, Fernie, Gibsons, and Trail.
Trail is receiving the greatest amount of funding on the list: $800,000 for the Trail Pipe/Pedestrian Bridge, which is a 3.8m wide, 280m long multi-use bridge along the TransCanada Trail across the Columbia River.
