Quebec announces $206 million for Estrie roads

The Quebec Ministry of Transportation (MTQ) unveiled its annual investment plan for roads and highway infrastructure in the Estrie region last week, announcing over $206 million in funding for projects over the next two years. The announcement was made Friday by Minister of the Family and Minister responsible for the Estrie, and Sherbrooke Member of the National Assembly (MNA) Luc Fortin with fellow MNAs Karine Vallières (Richmond), Guy Hardy (Saint-François), and Pierre Reid (Orford.) "The investments announced today demonstrate beyond a shadow of a doubt that our government is always there to support major public infrastructure projects,” said Fortin. ”I am thinking of the completion of the last phase of Highway 410, the investment of $26 million for the reconstruction of the Grandes-Fourches Bridge in downtown Sherbrooke, and the repair work on the Jacques-Cartier Bridge that will begin soon. This is decisive support for the development of the city of Sherbrooke and the entire Estrie region." See full story in the Tuesday, March 27th edition of The Record.
