COLLINGWOOD, Ont. — To ease traffic congestion and improve road safety, the government is moving forward with the first phase of a $30 million, two-phase initiative for the realignment of Highway 26.
This stretch of highway runs from Collingwood to Wasaga Beach, and the first phase will require $2.48 million to provide clearing, grading and drainage along 5.6 kilometres of the road.
“This new multi-million dollar investment to rebuild Highway 26 on a new alignment will mean easier and safer trips for tourists, recreation enthusiasts and local residents,” says Simcoe-Grey MPP, Jim Wilson. “This investment in infrastructure will sustain and strengthen the Wasaga-Collingwood area’s growing economy and quality of life.”
Construction began in late March and is expected to be completed by the end of 2003.
