Council renews commitment to road improvements

Picton – The County of Prince Edward will undertake a number of significant road rehabilitation projects in the coming months.

“With residents and visitors depending on safe and passable roads, it is vital that we protect this core infrastructure,” says Robert Quaiff, Mayor, County of Prince Edward. “While maintaining nearly 1,100 kilometres of roads is no small task, we are committed to addressing specific areas of concern in a fiscally responsible manner.”

County Council recently approved several roadwork projects, including:

• Rehabilitation of 3.5 km of Wilson Road starting at County Road 2 and moving east.
• Rehabilitation of 6.6 km of Danforth Road from County Road 33 to Consecon Street.
• Rehabilitation of 1.8 km of Lucks Crossroad from County Road 8 to County Road 17.
• Replacement of the County Road 28 bridge, which is located between Massassauga Road and Salisbury Road.
• Surface treatment work on 40.3 km of roads throughout The County.

The planned projects are in addition to the roadwork already in progress, including:

• Rehabilitation of a 1 km section of County Road 1
• Rehabilitation of a 4.5 km section of County Road 3
• Rehabilitation of Belleville Street from Wellington Main Street to First Avenue.

County staff and roadwork contractors will make every effort to mitigate impacts to the public during these projects. Please allow for extra time while travelling through these areas this summer.

If required, road closures or traffic disruptions will be posted under the News and Notices section of The County`s website and shared on The County`s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
