A new 47-kilometre ATV trail is expected to be ready for the summer because of funding help from the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) and the P.E.I. government.
“This grant that we got from ACOA is basically going to be used to make bridges, signage to put through the trails and we’re going to get a mulcher to come and take the stumps out and stuff like that, just to make it a little bit smoother for people to drive in,” said Evangeline ATV Club president J.P. Gallant.
ACOA provided $29,607 for work on the new trail — a loop from Richmond to Tyne Valley — and to build an addition to the group’s clubhouse. The province also provided $11,860 for the project.
