The province continues to support and create jobs through road and bridge work. Over the course of the 2014 construction season, northeastern Ontario crews resurfaced many roads in Northern Ontario including 20 kilometres of Highway 124 from Dunchurch easterly. Work also continues on the expansion of 20 kilometres of Highway 69 south of Sudbury. Minister of Northern Development and Mines Michael Gravelle says this year was certainly another successful year for the Northern Highways Program and by continuing to invest in the expansion and improvement of vital transportation links, we are helping to support a dynamic business climate in the North and improve the lives of northerners. Improving highways and bridges is part of the government’s economic four part plan of building Ontario up by investing in people’s talents and skills, building new public infrastructure like roads and transit, creating a dynamic, supportive environment where business thrives and building a secure savings plan so everyone can afford to retire.
