On July 2, 2020, the federal government announced funding for the crucial expansion and safety upgrades to County Road 43 (CR43) in the Municipality of North Grenville.
This joint federal and provincial investment is made possible through the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program, and will leverage Counties and Municipal dollars.
A joint partnership between the Municipality of North Grenville and the United Counties of Leeds Grenville for this phase will expand approximately 1.15 km of County Road 43 (CR43) to four-lanes with the addition of four roundabouts through the main part of Kemptville and rehabilitate the existing bridge across Kemptville Creek.
A Boulevard expansion of CR43 will incorporate pedestrian and cycling pathways, safe crossings, and proper lighting, as well as trees and a landscaped boulevard.
It is expected that construction will begin in 2021.
The complete CR43 Expansion Project will expand approximately 3.1 km of existing roadway to four-lanes, from Colonnade Mall through Kemptville to Somerville Road, and include the twinning of the existing bridge across Kemptville Creek.
