Province makes funding available for MH bridge project 

By Chad Ingram
provincial government is making funding available for the replacement
of a bridge in Minden Hills, although the completion of the project
would require the federal government to also produce funding. 
week, Haliburton-Kawartha Lakes-Brock MPP and Ontario Infrastructure
Minister Laurie Scott made an announcement the government was
“nominating” the Sedgwick Bridge replacement project for nearly $470,000
in provincial funding, through the rural and northern stream of the
Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. 
project will help improve Sedgwick Road between Sawdust Road and
Francis Road in Minden Hills,” Scott said in a release. “We need to
build and maintain great road, bridge, air and marine infrastructure to
help get people to work and home safely, so they can spend more time
with the people they love.” 

Township of Minden Hills would contribute nearly $95,000, and the
federal government is being asked to contribute nearly $845,000. The
Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program entails projects being funded
by all three levels of government. The provincial government has also
announced it would make funding available for bridge replacement
projects in Algonquin Highlands and Highlands East, but the projects
must still be reviewed and approved by the federal government.
