CSRD Building New Bike Path

The Columbia Shuswap Regional District will receive $784,077 for construction of a new parallel bike path along Salmon River Rd.

The initiative is funded through a Provincial program called BikeBC. The path will not extend the entirety of the road, but is nonetheless a welcome addition for roadies and all cyclists in the area. Salmon River Rd is a beautiful place to ride bikes but is twisty, busy and the pavement can be a bit crusty.
