pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ments have an­nounced that they are in­vest­ing al­most $15 mil­lion in re­pairs to Routes 1 and 2.

There are 15 projects spread through­out the Is­land.

Ot­tawa is con­tribut­ing $7,476,919 from its New Build­ing Canada fund, while the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment will make up the re­main­der of the bill.

Eg­mont MP Gail Shea and pro­vin­cial Trans­porta­tion Min­is­ter Paula Biggar made the an­nounce­ment in Sle­mon Park Tues­day.

Much of the work con­sists of repaving and re­pairs, how­ever, there are also some new larger projects as well.
