Council Investing $6.8 Million In Multi-Year Project To Resurface 63 Km Of Gravel Roads To Hard Tops

KAWARTHA LAKES-Council is allocating $2.5 million this year to take some roads from gravel to a hard top.

The municipality has received an additional $2.5 million in provincial funding from the Ontario Community Infrastructure Fund. This provides funding for small, rural and northern communities to develop and renew their infrastructure.

Council adopted the staff recommendation to create a multi-year capital project to invest the funds into approximately 63 kilometres of gravel roads across towns, villages, hamlets or built up lakefront communities. The roads will be resurfaced from gravel to a Hi-Float surface.

This year’s budget will see $2.5 million allocated to this project, with the balance occurring over 2023-2026.
