Upgraded road for northern communities.

Highway 58 Garden River access road in northern Alberta has been upgraded to meet provincial highway standards. Work was done on 57.8 km of existing summer/winter road to allow all-season access. New bridges and culverts were built, 7 km of road constructed, and almost 29 hectares of existing summer/ winter road corridors reclaimed. The upgraded road will allow easy access to Garden River and Fox Lake as well as extend provincial highway access to Wood Buffalo National Park. The project was cost-shared with $23 million from the province, $19.3 million from the Canadian government, and $400,000 from Little Red River Cree Nation.
