New Intersection Planned for Ancient Forest
Prince George, B.C. -Access to the Ancient Forest off Highway 16 east of Prince George, is about to be improved.
The Province will be contributing $1 million dollars to build an intersection to the park which welcomed more than 20 thousand visitors last year..
“These improvements to the intersection and parking facilities at the Ancient Forest will enhance visitors’ experience at this very special park,” said Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Todd Stone. “Ministry staff have taken great care to respect the environment during the work, making every effort to consider the unique environmental diversity of the area.”
In addition to the road improvements, the Province will work with the federal government to consider this area for a UNESCO World Heritage Site nomination in recognition of the outstanding values of the ancient cedar stands.
