Essex County Council approved the 2023 Road Rehabilitation Program Wednesday evening that includes more than $18 million for road projects and nearly $3 million for paved shoulder projects.

These projects have been approved in advance of full Budget approval to allow for early tendering, which provides the County the opportunity to take advantage of off-season prices while developing and coordinating work schedules with less conflict, and undertaking bridge construction outside of environmental restriction windows.

Those projects are:

Bridge Rehabilitation projects:

  • River Canard Bridge on County Road 9 – $3,875,000
  • River Canard Bridge on County Road 11 – $1,285,000

Culvert Rehabilitation Projects:

  • Wiper Drain on County Road 37 – $1,100,000
  • Tom Wright Drain on County Road 50 – $1,105,000
  • Long Marsh Drain on County Road 18 – $1,134,000

Road Rehabilitation Projects:

  • County Road 8 from County Road 27 to 450 m west of Graham Side Road – $985,000
  • County Road 20 from Ferriss Road to Iler Road – $1,155,000
  • County Road 25 from County Road 42 to Highway 401 – $1,235,000
  • County Road 27 from Highway 3 to MN#81 – $220,000
  • County Road 42 from County Road 35 to County Road 37 – $1,225,000
  • County Road 46 from County Road 23 to Lakeshore Road 203 – $730,000
  • County Road 50 from Wright Road to Dahinda Road – $925,000
  • County Road 3 from County Road 20 to County Road 8 – $345,000
  • County Road 34 from County Road 45 to Road 3 – $490,000
  • County Road 35 from Lakeshore Road 305 to Highway 401 – $300,000
  • County Road 37 from County Road 14 to Mersea Road 7 – $520,000
  • County Road 27 from MN#81 to County Road 34 – $225,000
  • County Road 31 from County Road 2 to County Road 42 – $585,000

County Council adopted its Paved Shoulder program in 2016. The program aligns paved shoulder projects with road rehabilitation projects as an efficient and cost-effective way of building out the County Wide Active Transportation System.

Paved shoulder projects stretching 14 km:

  • 1.6 km on County Road 3 from County Road 20 to County Road 8
  • 3.3 km on County Road 8 from County Road 27 to 450 metres west of Graham Side Road
  • 4 km on County Road 25 from County Road 42 to Highway 401
  • 2.7 km on County Road 31 from County Road 2 to MN# 921
  • 0.8 km on County Road 34 from County Road 45 to Road 3
  • 1.6 km on County Road 50 from Wright Road to Dahinda Drive.
