Kids play soccer at Surerus Park. The city is receiving a provincial grant for lighting improvements along the park trails.

Both Fort St. John and Taylor are sharing in provincial grants for active transportation.

The ministry of transportation and infrastructure says 59 projects and 15 plans across the province are sharing in $20 million of funding budgeted for the latest intake of the Active Transportation Infrastructure Grants program.

Locally, grants are being provided for lighting improvements along the multi-use trails in Surerus Park in Fort St. John.

And in Taylor, grants are being given to complete the paved loop around Lone Wolf golf course, which the ministry says will include “better trail access, new bike parking facilities and improved wayfinding.”

The infrastructure program offers communities cost-sharing grants up to a $500,000 maximum for the cost of an active transportation project, according to the province.

Chetwynd is also receiving funding for a new sidewalk along Nicholson Road.
