Hastings Highlands Council Wants Community Input on Major Road Work

A 4.7 kilometre stretch of Highway 62 in Maynooth will be getting a makeover, but before work starts Hastings Highlands council wants the community’s input.

MP Mike Bossio and MPP Daryl Kramp teamed up over the summer to announce that $1,160,940 from the federal government and $644,322 from the provincial government will be going to help with the rehab work. Hastings Highlands will also pitch in $129,638 for the work between Young Street and McAlpine Road.

The work is in the design phase right now and the municipality is inviting the community to see and comment on the project. “The project aims to renew the roadway including asphalt, curbs, parking, and sidewalks,” the municipality says. They add that the storm sewer system will be repaired or replaced where necessary.

When the funding was announced in August, Mayor of Hastings Highlands Vic Bodnar said it was a long time coming. He also noted that this will only be a partial fix.

The information session will be held in Emond Hall in the Hastings Highlands municipal office on October 8th. It will run from 6 PM until 8.
