Ontario Government Nominates Critical Infrastructure Project for Oxford

TORONTO – The government of Ontario is making smart infrastructure investments to create jobs and grow the economy while protecting what matters most to hardworking families and businesses in Oxford. Earlier this spring, Ontario’s Minister of Infrastructure, Monte McNaughton, launched the $30-billion joint federal-provincial Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. Minister McNaughton has now announced projects that will be nominated for funding under the program including the Tillsonburg Concession Street West reconstruction project, which has been nominated for $1,369,100 in funding.


“The Concession Street West reconstruction project is important to the Town of Tillsonburg, and I’m so glad that Minister McNaughton has put it forward as a priority,” said Oxford MPP Ernie Hardeman. “Now it’s the federal government’s turn to step up and approve this vital project so that we can get shovels in the ground.”


Minister McNaughton has been working closely with MPP Hardeman in his role as Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs on the $500-million Rural and Northern stream of this program. Projects, such as the Tillsonburg Concession Street West project are the first to be nominated under this stream.


“These projects help make towns like Tillsonburg the best places to live, work, start a business and raise a family,” said Hardeman. “Roads and bridges help us get home safely to our families and spend more time in our communities, which is why projects like the road work in Tillsonburg are so important to Oxford and to small communities throughout the province.”
