Eastern Ontario to benefit from new and improved roads and bridge replacement
August 8, 2019, Tyendinaga Township, Ont. – Funding has been announced for three infrastructure projects in eastern Ontario – Tyendinaga, Tweed and Stone Mills.
In Tyendinaga Township, a new roundabout will be built at the intersection of Deseronto and Belleville Roads, in collaboration with the County of Lennox and Addington. The roundabout will improve traffic flow and safety for drivers while promoting safe active transportation.
In Tweed, the Boundary Bridge, which has been closed since 2018, will be replaced with a new single-lane superstructure, restoring a vital link in the municipal road network. This project will improve safety for drivers and shorten emergency vehicle response times for the community.
