EDMONTON, Alta. — More than $30 million is going to be injected into the coffers of 11 Alberta municipalities in need of infrastructure upgrades.

The contribution is part of the Infrastructure Canada-Alberta Program (ICAP) and will provide transportation infrastructure with a boost right across the province. Under the program, the federal and provincial governments provide up to two-thirds of the funding for eligible projects.

Some of the road-related projects identified this time around include: the paving of the Spillstead Road in Beaver County; road improvements in Bruderheim; Arbutus Road upgrades in Clearwater County; and commercial road development in Falher.

The majority of the funding, however, will go towards extending Edmonton’s light rail transit system.
