$341,515.85 is being sent to Faraday Township to help with replacing the Old Hastings Road Bridge.
MPP for Hastings-Lennox and Addington Daryl Kramp made the announcement Thursday that the money is coming thanks to the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. It’s designed to help improve Ontario infrastructure, create jobs and grow the economy.
Along with the funding going to Faraday, $916,500 is going towards the reconstruction of York Road and the rehab work needed on the Mud Creek Bridge in Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory.
“Both of these projects represent critical infrastructure not just for local citizens but for the many people who travel through these communities on a daily basis,” Kramp says.
These projects are the seventh and eighth ones nominated in Hastings-Lennox and Addington as a part of the Rural and Northern stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. Another 49 projects have been nominated by the Province. The 10-year program will provide up to $30 billion in federal, provincial, and local investments in communities across Ontario.
More funding may be coming from the Federal government for these projects, but that decision has yet to be made.
