The Township of Russell recognizes the Federal Government through Infrastructure Canada’s Federal Gas Tax Fund allocation.
The project consists of repaving 7,050m of existing roads. For the Township, it also means that well-maintained road surfaces improve traffic flow, help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve safety and reduce maintenance costs for both the municipality and motorists.
The Gas Tax Fund allocation will be used to improve streets sections in the Township:
- Route 300 (from St-Guillaume to St-Pierre),
- King St. (1550 m west of Limoges Rd.),
- St-Pierre Rd (1000m south of Route 200 to 1000m north), and;
- Hamilton Rd. (from Burton Rd to Route 100).
The preparation of the roads will start at the beginning of May and should be completed by mid-July.
The Project is budgeted at a cost of $1 026,000 and a portion will be funded through Infrastructure Canada’s Federal Gas Tax Fund.
