Province to invest $166 million in Townships roads

By Gordon Lambie

Quebec Transport Minister François Bonnardel was in Sherbrooke on Monday for the government’s annual announcement of investments in the local transportation network. A total of 103 projects were named as a part of the announcement, the majority of which fall into the categories of either road maintenance, structure maintenance, or improvements to the security of the road network. “It is like Christmas in February for many elected officials,” Bonnardel said of the annual announcement, pointing out that the ministry of transport is one of the ministries whose work impacts the population on a daily basis. Among the major projects included in the plan is the provincial government’s part of the funding for the Grandes-Fourches bridge project in Sherbrooke, the funding to rebuild the Main Street bridge in North Hatley, repaving work on highways 10, 410, and 55, as well as more than $17 million that has been set aside for the completion of the Highway 410 extension project.
