49 projects have been nominated for funding through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, with three being from North Hastings.

$1,759,000 will be going to Hastings Highlands as they work on revitalizing a five kilometre stretch of Local Road 62. Carlow/Mayo will be rehabbing Mayo Lake and Hartsmere Road Rehabilitation with the $1,897,000 in funding they will be getting, while Tudor and Cashel will  be getting $1,652,000 to continue rehab work on Weslemekoon Lake Road.

M.P.P. For Hastings-Lennox and Addington Daryl Kramp was joined by Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure Monte McNaughton and M.P. Mike Bossio for the announcement in Tweed on Friday.

The 49 projects will account for $78 million in funding, which will be split between the Federal and Provincial government along with some money from the individual Municipal governments.

“This is an important infrastructure for families and for small businesses and farmers,” McNaughton tells My Bancroft Now. “We want to make sure we’re protecting the health and safety of people in the province.”

“I know that MPP Daryl Kramp and I have both been advocating for the needs of our municipalities and I am happy to see that hard work paying off,” Bossio said at the announcement. Kramp added that these are 49 important projects and that he’s excited to get them started.

The ICIP program is a 10-year, $30 billion fund that is designed to support public transit, roads, bridges and other crucial infrastructure in rural communities.

The projects will begin once funding from the federal government is approved.
