A pair of projects in Williams Lake and one in Wells will receive a big boost in funding.
$100 million from the Community Economic Recovery Infrastructure Program (CERIP) will go to a number of projects and programs around the province, including a few here in the Cariboo.
$550,000 will go towards the Williams Creek and River Valley shared multi-user boardwalk. The project includes a 900-metre multi-use boardwalk which will complete a 15-km trail connecting Williams Lake to the Fraser River, and will enhance the Gold Rush Trail.
The Williams Lake Trail Riders Association will receive a boost as well. The group will receive $109,803 for re-roofing the stable and riding arena.
Elsewhere in the Cariboo, $441,600 will go towards substantial improvement towards the Wells Outdoor Skating rink.
