CRD Wants Wi-Fi at Rest Stops
Williams Lake, B.C. – The Cariboo Regional District Board wants in on the provincial government’s plan to expand free, public Wi-Fi capabilities at rest areas around the province.
The Board decided at its monthly meeting this week to write a letter to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure asking them to consider expanding the initiative it announced last fall.
Those areas getting Wi-Fi are:
- Britton Creek Highway 5 – 67 kilometres south of Merritt
- Mt Terry Fox Highway 16 – 6 km east of Tete Jaune
- Galena Bay Highway 23 – 49 km north of Nakusp
- Glacier View Highway 16 – 7 km north of Smithers
- Taylor River Highway 4 – 3 km west of Port Alberni
Starting this spring, travellers in the above areas will be able to identify which rest areas have Wi-Fi by the Wi-Fi graphic on the rest-area sign (see an example of what the sign looks like above).
