CARNARVON, Ont. — The Ernie Eves Tory government says it will spend $2.3 million to resurface Hwy. 118 and install paved shoulders in the Haliburton area.
The announcement, made jointly by Transportation Minister Norm Sterling and Haliburton-Victoria-Brock MPP Chris Hodgson, includes resurfacing the 118 from Hwy. 35 in Carnarvon westerly for about 23km in order to extend the service life of the highway.
The contract was awarded to Miwel Construction Limited of Stouffville.
“Our government’s record investment in highway infrastructure is fueling economic growth throughout Ontario,” says Sterling. “When completed, this project will enhance road safety and prolong the operational life of this highway.”
Construction is scheduled to begin this month and will be completed by November 2002.
