Investing in local communities to keep families safe and goods moving

Our PC government is committed to building a safer and more reliable transportation system to help keep goods moving and to better connect communities across the province.

To that end, our government today announced it is providing $30 million to support 24 municipalities across the province by helping them build, repair or replace municipal roads and bridges that connect two ends of a provincial highway through a community or to a border crossing.

The funding, which is delivered through the Connecting Links program, will support three bridge repairs, 10 resurfacing projects, seven reconstruction projects, and four detailed design projects to prepare for further infrastructure investments.

"We understand that the maintenance and repair costs of roads and bridges places a heavy burden on our municipal partners," said Caroline Mulroney, MPP for York-Simcoe and Minister for Transportation. "That is why we continue to support our local communities with investments that will keep families safe, goods moving, and drive economic growth and job creation.”
