Local projects for road refurbishments get Connecting Links funding

Two projects in Bruce and Grey are receiving substantial funding to help complete them.

Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Bill Walker announced today that the Town of South Bruce Peninsula and Owen Sound will collectively receive a max of just shy of $4 million to refurbish two local roads.

South Bruce Peninsula will get a max of $3 million towards the reconstruction of Berford Street from Mary Street to Division Street including traffic signals at Frank Street and George Street. Owen Sound will get a max of just shy of $1 million toward the rehabilitation of 16th Street from 9th Avenue East to 18th Avenue East.

The money is coming from the Connecting Links program.
