Ontario’s government is investing over $1.3 million for more road and bridge projects in Wellington—Halton Hills, which will make the province’s roads safer and commutes easier while opening Ontario for business.
As part of the Rural and Northern stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, Infrastructure Minister, Laurie Scott, on behalf of Wellington—Halton Hills MPP Ted Arnott, announced today that the Province has nominated the following projects to the federal government for approval:
- Township of Puslinch: upgrade of Moyer’s Bridge and reconstruction of McLean Road/ Concession 7 from the intersection of McLean Road/Concession 7 to County Road 34
- Town of Halton Hills: improvements to Glen Lawson Road/ Third Line
- Town of Erin: replacement of 8th Line Bridge
The federal government will now review these projects and make final funding decisions.
As of August 9, 2019, 144 projects have been nominated to the federal government under the Rural and Northern stream. The funding for this ICIP stream has now been allocated.
“We need to build and maintain great road, bridge, air and marine infrastructure to help get people to work and home safely, so they can spend more time with the people they love,” said Scott. We’re continuing to work with municipalities, families and businesses, to make smart investments in our infrastructure, and keep it reliable. These investments are creating good jobs and growing the economy, shaping the future for hard-working families in Ontario.”
