ATVs granted access to certain Bathurst streets as of June 1st

After several years of consultations, discussions and planning, ATVs will finally be granted access to amenities in downtown Bathurst.

New Brunswick ATV Federation development coordinator Jacques Ouellette made the announcement at Bathurst's council meeting on Monday night.

Over the next several weeks, Ouellette says signs will be installed along the approved route.

ATVs will be permitted to cross the East Bathurst bridge, down Main Street, and on to St. George Street in order access amenities like hotels, restaurants, shopping, and fuel effective June 1st.
