WATERLOO, Ont. — A two-year contract has been signed, which will see considerable highway upgrades at the Hwy. 7 and Hwy. 86 interchange near Kitchener-Waterloo.

About $6.6 million will be spent on upgrading the highway, installing new lighting devices on the Conestoga Parkway and improving road signs in the area.

“Our government’s record investment in highway infrastructure is fueling economic growth throughout Ontario,” Transportation Minister Brad Clark said. “When completed, this project will improve traffic flow, enhance road safety and encourage economic expansion.”

The announcement is music to the ears of local representatives.

“Keeping roadways and bridges spanning the Conestoga Parkway in good repair is a sound investment for the future,” Kitchener-Waterloo MPP Elizabeth Witmer said. “This important work will support job creation and growth across Kitchener-Waterloo.”
