People who visit Rowan’s Ravine Provincial Park in Saskatchewan will be able to see some recent improvements to the roads surrounding the park, a report said.
Road improvements and paving in the amount of $10.7 million have been completed in the region.
Improvements can be seen on Highway 322 from north of the Glen Harbour access road to its intersection with Highway 220.
“Highways 322 and 220 are essential gateways to those traveling to Rowan’s Ravine and the surrounding area,” Highways Minister Fred Bradshaw said in a release on Thursday. “These improvements keep our roads safe so that families and visitors can enjoy their time in our parks.”
Other improvements to the paving in the park include paving the Underwood campground loops, boat launch, and day-use parking lot.
“This was an incredible season for Saskatchewan‘s parks as families got out and rediscovered our province’s natural beauty,” stated Parks, Culture, and Sports Minister Laura Ross.
“I am grateful to Minister Bradshaw and the Highways Ministry for including park improvements in their work this summer.”
The project‘s funds were added to the provincial government budget for 2021-2022 which allocated $180 million for the 280 kilometers of improvements of highways in the rural area.
