LEVIS, Que. — The Governments of Canada and Quebec are investing $27.6 million to widen the bridges across the Chaudire River on Highway 20 in the Lvis area.

This announcement is part of the overall $217 million Strategic Highway Infrastructure Program (SHIP) agreement signed by federal Transport Minister David Collenette and Quebec Minister of Transport Yvon Marcoux.

Under the agreement, the two governments will each pay one half of the cost of the projects. Funding for the projects will depend on the results of mandatory environmental assessments.

"I am pleased that funds from the Strategic Highway Infrastructure Program are being used for these highway improvements in the region. These projects will help maintain and upgrade existing roads which will enhance public safety and benefit communities," said MP (Lvis-et-Chutes-de-la-Chaudire) Christian Jobin.
