This week, construction has started at the Pidherny Recreation Site to expand the parking lot at the north end of the site off of Foothills Boulevard.
The size of the lot is being expanded to increase the number of available parking spots from 30 to 40. Crews will also be marking parking spaces at the site to help manage traffic in the lot. The operation will relocate the picnic area as well as the existing fence and boulders that border the lot.
The parking lot will remain open to the public during the operation, which is expected to be completed by the middle of October. Parking is also available in the southern lot on Piderny Road, which can be reached via North Nechako Road.
Funding for the project is being provided by Recreation Sites and Trails BC as part of a partnership with the City of Prince George for the management and upkeep of the site.
