British Columbia’s (BC) roads are on target to complete $20m upgrades, the Canadian authorities have announced.

The work on more than 200 Forest Service (FS) roads in BC began in the past spring and will continue through the entire 2011 construction season.

Main construction work includes bridge repairs and replacements in addition to grading and resurfacing.

The FS road project is part of the government’s plans to inject new funds to stimulate economic development and improve travel conditions on Forest Service roads in Canada.

FS roads serve as crucial transportation links to rural communities and recreation sites.
