Province Continues to Support Railway Tunnel Restoration
More money is on the way to help with Brockville's Rail Tunnel restoration.
The Ontario 150 Community Capital Program has donated an extra $250,000 to the cause.
With the latest donation, funding for the railway tunnel's first phase of construction is up to $3.1 million. The total cost is around $3.9 million.
The first phase of the project will restore the railway tunnel and its north-portal gorge. The tunnel will be secured structurally,with lighting and security cameras and a smooth concrete floor added in.
A rubber-wheeled "Rotary Train" will also be purchased to transport tourists between the north and south ends of the tunnel.
The first phase of the project is too be unveiled on August 10th when the Rails to Trails festival begins in Brockville.
