Shiloh Line cash finally approved; roadwork slated for 2021

A car heads down Shiloh Line toward AW Campbell Conservation Area.

Brooke-Alvinston has finally been given the okay to fund the rehabilitation of Shiloh Line.

The township has been hoping to rebuilt the road, pave a section which is gravel and add a pedestrian lane for almost two years now.

The province approved funding for the project months ago but the federal government just approved the $3 million project.

The federal government will provide over $1.8 million, the province about $1 million and the municipality will pay about $200,000 toward the project.

Seven projects were approved in southwestern Ontario today.

“Investments in road infrastructure, especially in small towns, are crucial for the safe and timely movement of people and goods. This announcement is good news for southwestern Ontario,” says Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Monte McNaughton in a news release.

“The project will keep the road viable for agricultural traffic. Upgrades to the road will also improve access and egress from the adjacent A.W. Campbell Conservation Area,” says Brooke-Alvinston Mayor Dave Ferguson.
