The Glengarry News - - News - BY STEVEN WAR­BUR­TON

North Glen­garry’s roads and cul­verts will re­ceive more than $3 mil­lion worth of ren­o­va­tion work, thanks to the new United Coun­ties bud­get.

The most ex­pen­sive pro­ject by far is a stretch of County Road 21 that runs from County Road 34 to the Old Mil­i­tary Road in Lochiel. The price tag is just over $1.1 mil­lion.

An­other stretch of County Road 21 – this one run­ning from Lorne School Road to Glen Sand­field – is also ear­marked for re­pairs and is ex­pected to cost close to $1 mil­lion.

Work on County Road 46 in Alexan­dria should cost about $374,000. Coun­ties trans­porta­tion depart­ment is also plan­ning on re­pair­ing the Camp­bell Mu­nic­i­pal Drain Cul­vert ($296,000) and East Scotch River Bridge ($520,000.)

Al­though South Glen­garry is slated to re­ceive sub­stan­tially less work, it’s iden­ti­fied two projects that are con­sid­ered high pri­or­i­ties should the coun­ties be suc­cess­ful in procur­ing fed­eral and pro­vin­cial grants. The first pro­ject is to re­ha­bil­i­tate an ap­prox­i­mate- ly 11-km sec­tion of County Road 2 from Lan­caster to County Road 23 near Bainsville. The cost of this pro­ject is es­ti­mated at $2,848,000.

The other pro­ject would be to pul­ver­ize and resur­face a 10 km stretch of County Road 23 from County Road 2 to County Road 18. As for work ear­marked for South Glen­garry, the coun­ties is plan­ning on spend­ing $70,000 for the County Road 17 cul­vert lin­ing and $ 342,000 for the Woods Creek Cul­vert.
