Cycling infrastructure getting a boost in Trail and Castlegar

Cycling infrastructure in the Trail and Castlegar area is getting a boost.

Trail is receiving over 181 thousand dollars from the province to improve cycling access to the Columbia River Skywalk, the 2nd phase of the project for the multi-use bridge along the Trans Canada Trail.. they received 800-thousand dollars from Bike BC 2 years ago.

For Castlegar, they'll see 59-thousand dollars in funding to build a multi-use pathway from the Kinnaird Bridge to College Trail, a further extension of the path that connected the Connors Road multi use pathway with the Kinnaird Bridge last year.
