Residents in Alberton, Dawson, Fort Frances and O'Connor to benefit from bridge replacement and roadway drainage improvements

ALBERTON, ON, Aug. 14, 2019 /CNW/ - Investing in public roadway 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, Don Rusnak, Member of Parliament for Thunder Bay–Rainy River, on behalf of the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development, with Mike Ford, Reeve for The Corporation of the Township of Alberton announced funding for a bridge replacement and roadway improvements for four communities in Northwestern Ontario.

In the Township of Alberton, the project involves the replacement of the Kehl Bridge, along with resurfacing 2 kilometres of Kehl Road to join seamlessly with the bridge.

Three other municipalities will receive funding for roadway and drainage improvements. Funding will help to improve Colonization Road in the Township of Dawson, Colonization Road West in the Town of Fort Frances, and Sitch Road in the Township of O'Connor. These projects will improve drainage and erosion control to make the roadways safer and more efficient for all users.

The Government of Canada is investing more than $1.6 million in the four projects through the Rural and Northern Communities Infrastructure Stream of the Investing in Canada infrastructure plan. The Province of Ontario is contributing over $1 million towards the four projects and municipalities are responsible for the remaining project costs.

Quotes

"Improving transportation infrastructure helps ensure that Canadians have more time to spend with their families every day. Once complete, these important roads projects in Alberton, Fort Frances, Dawson and O'Connor will result in safer and more efficient roadways for residents and visitors."

Don Rusnak, Member of Parliament for Thunder Bay–Rainy River, on behalf of the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development

"Kehl Bridge is an important piece of infrastructure for our community as well as the Rainy River District. It is located on the route designated to act as bypass should an emergency cause closure of the Highway 11/71 rail crossing.  This funding will help keep our community a safe and is greatly appreciated."

Mike Ford, Reeve for the Corporation of the Township of Alberton.

"The Town of Fort Frances is very pleased and would like to thank MP Rusnak and the Government of Canada for this funding announcement for the much needed revitalization of Colonization Road W. This stretch of municipal road has been repaired numerous times and has been unsafe for public use for a long time. This funding is greatly appreciated."

Mayor June Caul, Fort Frances
