SUNDRIDGE, Ont. — After 20 years of lobbying for it, Sundridge may finally get a new MTO patrol yard when Hwy. 11 widening reaches the Hwy. 124 interchange.

The MTO is looking at building a new patrol yard in Sundridge. The project is in the environmental assessment for site selection and preliminary design stage.

Sundridge Reeve Elgin Schneider, says Sundridge needs a patrol yard because trucks always run low on salt or sand by the time they reach the town.

“We want to have an additional yard for maintenance once four-laning (of Hwy. 11) is completed, or at least under construction. It is difficult to place a patrol yard. We want to find the most appropriate site possible to best service the area and properly maintain and plow the highway,” Project Manager Mike Pearsall tells local media.
