Bridge being replaced

Ontario is creating 46 new jobs while improving infrastructure on Highway 11 east of Fort Frances.
The Seven-Mile Bridge is being replaced to improve travel and safety for families and businesses while strengthening tourism and the economy in the north.

The Sharp Group has been awarded the $4.6-million contract.
Work will begin this spring, with completion scheduled for the fall.
“Our government’s continued investment in the Northern Highways Program ensures that vital transportation links are expanded and improved for local residents, visitors, and industries,” said Northern Development and Mines minister Michael Gravelle.
“This project will see the creation of about 46 new local jobs as we work to improve safety and provide better road conditions near Fort Frances,” he added.
“Our government is committed to improving infrastructure across the province to strengthen our economy and create jobs,” said Transportation and Infrastructure minister Glen Murray.
“Projects such as this will help ensure our roads are in good condition and among the safest in North America for years to come,” he noted.
