Highway Improvements Underway in St. Catharines and Lincoln
Ontario Government Creating Jobs, Building a Strong Economy
Ontario is repaving the Queen Elizabeth Way (QEW) near St. Catharines and Lincoln to improve travel times, create safer driving conditions and support 80 jobs.
Work includes resurfacing the QEW for just over 7 kilometres from east of Victoria Avenue to east of Seventh Street. Construction is underway and is targeted for completion by November.
Improving highways, roads and bridges is part of the Ontario government's plan to invest in infrastructure, one of the three pillars of the government's economic plan for jobs and growth.
- The contract was awarded to Coco Paving Inc. of Toronto.
- Ontario has 16,900 kilometres of highway and 2,800 bridges.
- Ontario is investing $2.4 billion in construction this year, creating more than 20,000 jobs.
“Our government is committed to maintaining and improving Ontario’s highway infrastructure. These projects will create jobs, strengthen the economy and help keep goods and people moving for years to come.”
