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 United Counties of Leeds and Grenville and the Municipality of North Grenville, the CR43 Rehabilitation project expand approximately 3.1 km of existing roadway to four-lanes, from Colonnade Mall through Kemptville to County Road 44. It also includes the construction of a new four lane bridge across Kemptville Creek.
The expansion of CR43 into a well-lit boulevard will incorporate pedestrian and cycling pathways, safe crossings, ample lighting, as well as trees and landscaped roundabouts and medians.
Phase 1 - construction of a brand new, two-lane bridge - will commence in 2022.
