I’m pleased to announce $26.9 million for the reconstruction of a segment of Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 12. This segment is located between the Trans-Canada Highway and PTH 15, which has deteriorated rapidly over the last few years of increased traffic volumes.
I’m thrilled that this much-needed improvement to PTH 12 is moving forward. This reconstruction is essential to improving highway safety in our community.
Reconstruction of PTH 12 includes pulverizing the existing surface, applying bituminous pavement, and widening the shoulders to meet current safety standards. The project will also improve the intersection at Provincial Road 501, rehabilitate a railway crossing, and improve drainage in the area.
This reconstruction of PTH 12 will accommodate increased commercial activity and will meet current and future traffic volumes in our growing area of Dawson Trail.
