Florence Lake Road improvements worth$400,000

Florence Lake Road's driving surface has been graded and fresh gravel added to provide a smoother ride for those looking for recreational opportunities in the area.

The joint provincial government and District of Mission project cost $400,000 to improve 8.4 kilometres of roadway. This builds on the previous $1.2-million of federal-provincial money used on the same road.

The Mission Interpretive Forest is located in the Stave Lake area of the Fraser Valley and includes 5,000 hectares in the western portion of Mission's Community Forest. The Florence Lake Road provides public access to the area where the district is looking to develop additional recreation sites and amenities, and demonstrate that working forests can also offer recreational opportunities.
