The Ontario government has announced $30 million in funding for municipalities to build, repair or replace local roads and bridges, and Windsor will be applying to receive a portion of those funds.

Premier Doug Ford made the announcement, Thursday afternoon, at a joint news conference with Windsor Mayor Drew Dilkens.

The funding, part of a program called the Connecting Links program, will fund up to 90 per cent of eligible project costs, up to a maximum of $3 million for road projects.

“This investment is another part of our made-in-Ontario plan for growth, renewal and economic recovery,” said Ford.

Mayor Dilkens says the province has provided Windsor with over $9 million in funding for Connecting Links projects over the past few years

“Most of our recent projects are happening on Huron Church and they’re currently underway helping to improve this vital transposition and trade corridor,” Dilkens said.

Windsor received $3 million for the 2020-2021 fiscal year during an expanded funding announcement on June 30th. Those funds are also being used for Huron Church road.

Dilkens says the city will apply for the next round of funding starting tomorrow.
