Canada : Residents in Hastings Highlands, Carlow Mayo, and Tudor and Cashel to benefit from local road improvements.

Investing in public infrastructure supports efficient transportation networks that help Canadians and their families get to work, school and essential services on time and back home safely at the end of a long day.

Today, Mike Bossio, Member of Parliament for HastingsLennox and Addington, on behalf of the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development, Daryl Kramp, Member of Provincial Parliament for HastingsLennox and Addington, on behalf of the Honourable Laurie Scott, Ontarios Minister of Infrastructure, Vic A. Bodnar, Mayor of the Municipality of Hastings Highlands, Libby Clarke, Reeve of the Township of Tudor and Cashel, and Mike Cannon, Councillor for the Township of Carlow Mayo announced funding to improve local roads for three Ontario municipalities.

In Hastings Highlands, the project involves improving nearly five kilometres of Local Road 62 between Young Street and McAlpine Road. Work on the roadway will include new asphalt paving, replacing culverts for improved drainage, and guiderail improvements. Once completed, the project will make it safer and more efficient for everyone using this road. Two other projects will receive funding to improve Mayo Lake Road and Hartsmere Road in the Township of Carlow Mayo, and Weslemkoon Lake Road in Tudor and Cashel Township.

The Government of Canada is investing more than $3.7 million in the three projects through the Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. The province is contributing about $2 million towards the three projects and municipalities are responsible for the remainder of the project costs.

Hastings Highlands is thrilled to receive this much needed funding. The long planned for refurbishing of Highway 62 can now begin. Thank you to the government for recognizing that small rural communities appreciate the support for initiatives such as this since without their generosity we would never be able to afford the needed repairs.

Vic A. Bodnar, Mayor of Hastings Highlands

The Township of Tudor and Cashel is very grateful to receive funding for Weslemkoon Lake Road which provides primary access to the northern core of our municipality. It is a huge financial help for Tudor and Cashel and one we could not have afforded. It is also helping us to come into alignment with our Asset Management Plan. Thank you for investing in Canada!

Libby Clarke, Reeve of the Township of Tudor and Cashel

On behalf of the Township of Carlow/Mayo, I would like to thank the Federal Government for their generous contribution to our Municipality. The funding we are to receive through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program will be used to rehabilitate Mayo Lake Road and Hartsmere Road. This rehabilitation will greatly improve the safety and quality of life of all who travel these roads and would not have been possible without this funding. At this time we would also like to express our sincere appreciation to MP Mike Bossio for his continued support in assisting us with funding.

Bonnie Adams, Reeve of the Township of Carlow Mayo
