CORNWALL — Transportation Minister Norm Sterling today announced funding support of $101,300 for a bridge repair project in Cornwall.
The funding will pay for 75 per cent of costs to rehabilitate the Highway 138 (Brookdale Avenue) bridge at the Raisin River.
"This project is a prime example of the province and municipalities working successfully together toward common goals," Sterling said. "These improvements will provide local residents, businesses and visitors with safe and efficient thoroughfares for years to come."
This funding is part of the Ministry of Transportation's $16 million, 2002/2003 Connecting Links program that assists municipalities with capital projects on local roads that connect provincial highways.
The investment is part of the government's five-year, $20-billion SuperBuild initiative designed to facilitate the largest infrastructure-building program in Ontario's history. Since 1995, the Ontario government has invested more than $6.5 billion in highway capital projects.
