PUSLINCH – The Township of Puslinch is rehabilitating part of Leslie Road West with support from the Canada Community-Building Fund.
Approximately 2.8kmm of Leslie Road West will be repaved between Watson Road South and Puslinch Flamborough Townline.
The work includes drainage improvement, bank stabilization, pulverizing of existing surface, and repaving.
It is scheduled to be complete by the end of 2023.
The project is budgeted for $834,195, with $339,793 coming from the federal Canada Community Building Fund.
“Municipalities own and operate most of the infrastructure that supports our economy and standard of living. Through programs like the Canada Community-Building Fund, we can support communities across the country to build and maintain local infrastructure with reliable and flexible funding,” said the Honourable Sean Fraser, Minister of Housing, Infrastructure and Communities.
“The Canada Community-Building Fund is an important resource for Puslinch,” said Mayor James Seeley.
“These infrastructure projects take time and cost a lot of money. We are grateful for the predictable and stable financial support that we get from the fund.”
The federal Canada Community-Building Fund is a permanent source of funding for municipal infrastructure and is helping Ontario’s municipal governments address a massive, province-wide infrastructure deficit while improving environmental sustainability and creating jobs and economic growth.
The Association of Municipalities of Ontario administers the Fund to all municipalities in Ontario, except for the City of Toronto.
