Province kicking in up to $22,500 for Chaffey’s Lock Bridge resurfacing
The project to resurface the Chaffey’s Lock Bridge on the Cataraqui Trail will receive up to $22,500 in funding through Ontario’s Rural Economic Development program.
Local MPP Steve Clark made the announcement yesterday.
The province says resurfacing the bridge, which has reached the end of its life and requires replacement will ensure that Rideau Lakes and the surrounding communities will be able to continue to take advantage of the historic site.
In making the announcement, Clark said, “The Chaffey’s Lock Bridge is an important piece of local history for the community and for the region.” He added, “I am proud to have been a strong advocate for this project and am excited that, with this investment by the Ontario Government, this bridge can continue to be a focal point for the area.”
