Funding for road projects in the Grand Lake region

The province says it will spend more than $3.5 million on road projects in the Grand Lake region this summer.

Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Bill Fraser made the announcement during a stop in Minto on Thursday.

A $1.2-million tender has been issued for 2.8 kilometres of paving along Route 10, from near the Sunbury-Queens county line to near Route 116.

Another tender will be issued for the replacement of a culvert on Route 123 at Redbank.

The province says it's also providing funding through the Municipal Designated Highway Program for projects in the villages of Chipman in Minto.

In Chipman, the government will pay for 2.5 kilometres of work on King Street – from the railway crossing to the village limits – including a level and reseal on a 1.9-kilometre section and paving on the remaining 0.6 kilometre section.

And in Minto, the province says it will pay for about 95 per cent of eligible costs for the paving of a 2.3-kilometre section of Route 10, from civic number 380 to Post Road.
