A main route used to get to Horse Lake First Nation will be paved by this fall. Township Road 734 is a gravel road frequently used by residents and other people living in the County nearby.

The section between Highway 43 and Range Road 120 will be paved at a cost of $4.6 million. A large portion will be be covered by an Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada grant, with the rest picked up by the First Nation and the Western Cree Tribal Council.

Chief Eugene Horseman says paving the road has been talked about for years, as it will be safer for people living and working in the area, and school buses that travel it. Paving will begin this month and should be done by mid-October. The County will be responsible for maintaining it, and replacing the bridge in 2019.
