The Ontario Government is creating 67 new jobs while improving infrastructure along a stretch of Highway 11 west of Atikokan.
More than 20 kilometres of Highway 11 is being repaved to enhance travel and improve safety for northern families and businesses.
Improving highways, roads and bridges helps create jobs now and in the future and helps people move safely and more easily. This is part of the Ontario government's economic plan to invest in people, invest in infrastructure and support a dynamic and innovative business climate.
"Our focus on northern highways continues to provide jobs and improved infrastructure for the people of Northern Ontario. This project is another in a long list of projects that will benefit us for years to come."
- Bill Mauro, MPP Thunder Bay-Atikokan
"Iâ€™m extremely pleased that our government continues to invest in key infrastructure funds like the Northern Highways Program, which continue to support the improvement and expansion of vital transportation corridors for local residents, visitors and industries across Northern Ontario."
- Michael Gravelle, Minister of Northern Development and Mines
"Our government is improving infrastructure across the province, which creates jobs and strengthens our economy. Projects such as this will help ensure our roads are safe and in good condition for years to come."
- Glen Murray, Minister of Infrastructure, Minister of Transportation
