Big bucks on the way to fix more of Hwy 620, from of Coe Hill to Glen Alda

COE HILL — Federal and provincial infrastructure money is on the way to Wollaston Township, to fix  seven kilometres of old Hwy 620 west of the village.

It’s expected to cost about $2 million for the  rebuilding of the township road, between Coe Hill and Glen Alda.

Ottawa and Queen’s park are ready to each chip in a third of the cost:  $652,000, politicians announced June 5.

Now the township has to find the same amount to get the job going, says Deputy Reeve Brent Goodwin.

The work has to be done by the March 31, 2011 deadline, or the job-creation funds are revoked.

Over the past three years, Wollaston Township council has received government grants to rebuilt 620 between the west side of Coe Hill west to near the Limerick Township boundary, at Ormsby.

Up to now, Wollaston hasn’t had to chip in any of its own money for the work, Goodwin said.
