Federal Gas Tax Fund infrastructure improvements on Canal Rd, Downey Rd & Moote Roote expected to be complete by October 2021

The federal Gas Tax Fund (GTF) is a permanent source of funding provided up front, twice-a-year, to provinces and territories, who in turn flow this funding to their municipalities to support local infrastructure priorities. Municipalities can pool, bank and borrow against this funding, providing significant financial flexibility.

The federal Gas Tax Fund delivers over $2 billion every year to 3600 communities across the country. In recent years the funding has supported approximately 4000 projects each year.

Thanks to the GTF, three community infrastructure projects are fully funded and expected to be complete by October 2021. These projects include:

1) Canal Road – Mumby to North Shore – $100,000
– Asphalt resurfacing and drainage improvements
– New line painting and traffic signage

2) Downey Road – Rymer to End – $280,000
     – Asphalt resurfacing and drainage improvements
– New entrance culverts
– New line painting and traffic signage

3) Moote Road – HC Road 63 to Stringer – $475,000
– Asphalt resurfacing and drainage improvements
– Road stabilization
– New line painting and traffic signage
