Federal Funding Approved
Mark Gerretsen, Member of Parliament for Kingston and Islands, announces that Infrastructure Canada will contribute $60 million – its one-third share of the funding – toward building the Third Crossing. This funding, along with that contributed by the province and the City, enables the City to begin work to build this bridge over the Cataraqui River. Construction is expected to begin in 2019.
