PELHAM, ONT. — The Ontario Government will provide funding for a road reconstruction project in Pelham, Ont.
The project will include full roadway reconstruction of 2.5 kilometres of Pelham Street, new pedestrian sidewalks, on-road cycling lanes and new street lighting worth about $1.67 million in provincial funding.
The initiative has been nominated under the Rural and Northern funding stream of the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program (ICIP), a 10-year, $30-billion cost-shared program that will support municipalities in repairing or building critical infrastructure, indicates a release.
The project in Pelham is in addition to 24 transit projects in the Region of Niagara being nominated under the Public Transit stream of ICIP.
The transit projects are worth about $23.9 million in provincial funding and include the purchase of new buses that will reduce maintenance costs, new fare boxes that allow for tap payment from phones, credit cards and debit cards, and the construction of a new operations facility that will allow Niagara to expand its transportation network to meet growing demand.
The federal government will review the proposals for eligibility under the program and make final funding decisions.
