Echo Bay Road Reconstructed in Huntsville

October 15, 2021

The Town of Hunstville has completed a significant road rehabilitation project using investments from the Canada Community-Building Fund.

Last year, the Town approved use of the fund for the reconstruction of Echo Bay Road. This included a full asphalt replacement of the roadway spanning 700 metres. Echo Bay Road includes both urban and rural boundaries and serves 35 households in the area, making it a well-travelled road within the region.

Echo Bay Road was more than 30 years old at the time, and was identified as being a high-priority project in the Town’s Roads Needs Study. Due to many years of frost heaving, settlement, cracking and rutting, it required immediate attention.

Huntsville’s roads project is just one of many funded by the Canada Community-Building Fund in 2020. In fact, the fund contributed to the rehabilitation and reconstruction of 3,783 lane-kilometres of roads across Ontario last year alone. Roads and bridges make up a large portion of CCBF spending, with $545.4 million spent in 2020.
