Replacing North Wicklow Bridge Near Cochrane
McGuinty Government Invests In Northern Transportation Infrastructure
Safety and driving will be improved with a new North Wicklow River Bridge on Highway 11 south of Cochrane.
Through Ontario's Northern Highways Program, the old structure is being replaced -- creating about 60 jobs in the region. Traffic will continue to use the old bridge until the new one is completed in August, 2011.
This project is part of the Open Ontario plan to create jobs and opportunities in Northern Ontario.
- Miller Paving was awarded the $8.1-million contract.
- The recent Ontario Budget committed $773 million in northern highway rehabilitation and expansion in 2010-2011.
“This project is one of several important highway improvement initiatives being undertaken throughout the riding this summer that will improve local infrastructure.”
“Rehabilitation and expansion work on our highways is driving economic activity throughout Northern Ontario.”
“Our ongoing investment is promoting economic development and job creation throughout Northern Ontario.”
