Ontario Supports Infrastructure Projects in Oxford

WOODSTOCK — The Government of Ontario is investing in what matters most by nominating infrastructure projects in Oxford to the federal government for approval as part of the joint Federal-Provincial-Municipal Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. In Oxford, 31st Line road reconstruction in Zorra has been nominated for $404,117.92 in provincial funding. In Blandford-Blenheim, the reconstruction of Bridge 24 over the Ninth River has been nominated for $1,312,368.75.

“We need to build and maintain our roads and bridges to help get people to work and home safely everyday,” said Oxford MPP Ernie Hardeman. “These improvement projects will help support our local business by making it easier for people to get around and provide good jobs to our communities.”
These new projects under the Rural and Northern Stream of the Investing in Canadian Infrastructure Program are in addition to the 49 projects across Ontario that were nominated for review on May 10th. The federal government will review these projects and make final funding decisions.

“Getting around in Oxford often means driving, and that’s why our government is committed to investing in our roads and bridges,” said Hardeman. “That’s why we’re supporting investments in our rural infrastructure which can create jobs, make it easier to get around our communities and help grow our local economy.”
