Loon River First Nation: CU344 Main Access Road Upgrade Project

     Loon River First Nation proposes to complete upgrades to its main access road extending from Highway 88 to the townsite within Loon Lake IR 235. The existing road will be upgraded to an all-season gravel road to meet the appropriate Alberta Transportation and Transportation Association of Canada (TAC) standards, and ready for future pavement. Activities will include stripping, grading, ditching, and installation of several culverts in low lying areas (identified drainages and wetlands). Construction will begin in the winter of 2023/2024 to limit impacts to the adjacent wetlands. The total project footprint (including current road footprint) is 14.53 ha, and works will occur within the current road alignment. While no activities to existing watercourse crossing works are expected, temporary wetland impacts are being evaluated within the road footprint.

    Wildlife species of concern including pileated woodpecker, woodland caribou, and Canada lynx.
