Ontario Providing Funding for Owen Sound Street Repairs in Shelburne
Province supporting the safe movement of people and goods and spurring
Dufferin-Caledon – The Ontario government is providing $1,170,191 to help Dufferin-Caledon resurface Owen Sound Street and Highway 10. The funding is being delivered through the Connecting Links program and will help to support the safe movement of people and goods and spur economic growth.
“Our government is providing funding to Shelburne to improve and repair this well-travelled section of Highway 10,” said Sylvia Jones, MPP for Dufferin-Caledon. “This investment will ensure this transportation infrastructure in Shelburne will be maintained for generations to come.”
“The Town of Shelburne is grateful for the Connecting Link funding received,” said Wade Mills, Mayor of Shelburne. “This funding will allow us to make significant and much-needed work to this stretch of road through our downtown core. As this road is traveled by many who live outside of our community, the infusion of provincial funding is entirely appropriate.”
The Connecting Links program provides funding for up to 90 per cent of eligible project costs. This includes a maximum of $3 million for road projects and $5 million for bridge projects. Eligible costs include the design, construction, renewal, rehabilitation and replacement of municipal roads and bridges that run through communities and connect to provincial highways.
“Our government is investing in municipal roads and bridges to support jobs and growth in our local communities,” said Caroline Mulroney, Minister of Transportation. “By helping municipalities make much-needed infrastructure improvements, our government is continuing to deliver on its plan to build a stronger Ontario and keep goods and people moving across the province.”
All eligible municipalities are encouraged to apply for 2024–25 Connecting Links program funding when the intake opens later this year.
- Connecting links are municipal roads that connect two ends of a provincial highway through a community or to an international or interprovincial border crossing.
- In Ontario, there are a total of 352 kilometres of connecting links, with 70 bridges in 77 municipalities.
