Extensive Roadwork Completed in Leeds and Thousand Islands
A well-used roadway in the Township of Leeds and the Thousand Islands got a significant overhaul last year thanks to investments from the Canada Community-Building Fund.
Junetown Road was rehabilitated between County Road 4 and Escott-Yonge Townline Road in the municipality. The roadway serves as an important access route between Leeds and the Thousand Islands and its neighbouring municipality, Front of Yonge Township.
The scope of work was extensive, including brushing and tree removal, ditching, culvert replacement, granular base upgrades and a new tar and chip road surface.
Prior to rehabilitation, the roadway scored poorly for pavement condition, and was identified in Leeds and Thousand Islands’ asset management plan as requiring immediate attention.
Junetown Road sees about 300 vehicles a day. Thanks to investments from the CCBF, it’s now safer for its many travellers, and has extended lifespan and usability.
