FUNDING APPROVED FOR TORONTO ROADS

TORONTO, Ont. — Toronto’s busy road construction season promises to be even busier this year, after the city’s Policy and Finance Committee approved $200 million in improvements.

Dave Kaufman, Toronto’s general manager of traffic services, sought approval for the funding.

“They passed it along intact. What it means is they recognize the needs this city has,” Kaufman told local media.

There is still one more step toward council ratification, as the full city council will vote on the 2001 budget next week.

“One step at a time,” said Kaufman.

Although the funding promises to improve Toronto-area highways, delays can be expected. Especially on the Gardiner Expressway and Don Valley Parkway.
