Nearly 550 metres of city trails will be improved, thanks to funding from the Government of Canada’s federal Gas Tax Fund. Starting today, crews will begin work to fix cracks and bumps and provide a smoother surface on two city trails: the UNBC Connector trail (between Ospika and Tyner Boulevard) and at Cpl. Darren Fitzpatrick Bravery Park.
The work is scheduled to be completed within two weeks, depending on weather conditions.
Additionally, starting today, hikers can use a new refreshed, gravel trail to access Connaught Hill Park off Queensway.
Pedestrians (and those on two or four wheels) are asked to use alternate trail routes while the work is underway. Subscribe to get email updates about vehicle and pedestrian ‘traffic disruptions’ at http://princegeorge.ca/subscribe
The federal Gas Tax Fund is provided annually to support local infrastructure priorities. In 2020, Prince George is receiving nearly $1.7 million, which is supporting trails, sidewalks, renovations at Masich Place Stadium and Two Rivers Gallery, and park washroom refurbishments.
