Connecting links are municipal roads or bridges that connect two ends of a provincial highway through a community.
The funding covers up to 90 per cent of eligible project costs, to a maximum of $3 million.
“We will continue to invest in municipal roads and bridges to keep families safe and to support jobs and growth in local communities,” said MPP Vic Fedeli.
Through the Connecting Links program, municipalities repair designated roadways and bridges.
Currently, there are 352 kilometres of connecting links, with 70 bridges in 77 Ontario municipalities.
Connecting Link projects are reviewed based on technical need and safety considerations such as connecting link bridge and road condition, need for repair in the near term and cost-effectiveness.
