Government officials gathered Wednesday with local residents to celebrate the completion of three major infrastructure projects in Lake Country.

Among the projects was renovations to the sewer treatment facility. This work receive $4.1 million from the federal gas tax fund.

In addition, upgrades were made to the Beasley Park parking lot. Thanks to an extensive makeover, including new paving, landscaping, lighting and signage, the upgraded parking lot will function as a transit park and ride facility. Funding for this just over $1 million project came from the gas tax fund, B.C. Transit and the District of Lake Country.

Lastly, the project to restore Bottom Wood Lake Road and upgrade local active transportation networks will help improve safety for pedestrians, cyclists, transit and vehicle traffic. The project included $207,000 from the federal gas tax fund, $52,700 from ICBC and $604,000 from the district.

“Each of these three infrastructure projects demonstrate the importance of federal and provincial government leadership and support through the Union of B.C. Municipalities, and highlight what can be done by solidifying partnerships that focus on public safety, health and environmental protection,” said Mayor James Baker.

“These infrastructure improvements make Lake Country a safer and sustainable community; and we appreciate the hard work of staff and contractors to get them done on time and on budget.”
