Township receives $1,749,000 for Grande Montée road project

About 3.5 kilometres of Grande Montée Road will be rebuilt, thanks to $1.1 million in federal support, announced by Glengarry-Prescott-Russell MP Francis Drouin today on behalf of the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development. The provincial government is providing an additional $649,000 for the project. With the $129,000 provided by the Township of East Hawkesbury, the total project value is $1,878,000.

The improvements involve rebuilding approximately 3.5 kilometres of Grande Montée Road, from Concession Road 7 to the Concession Road 5 and County Road 10 intersections. The widened sections of the road and intersections will improve traffic flow, making travelling on Grande Montée Road safer and more efficient.
