There are 23 new construction projects underway in eastern Ontario this season, creating nearly 1,000 construction jobs. This includes repaving, repairing and replacing transportation infrastructure such as roads, bridges, noise walls and signs.

As with all highway construction projects, drivers are reminded that speeding fines double in construction zones.

Ontario is making the largest investment in public infrastructure in the province's history - about $160 billion over 12 years, which is supporting 110,000 jobs every year across the province, with projects such as roads, bridges, transit systems, schools and hospitals.

Since 2015, the province has announced support for more than 475 projects that are helping to keep people and goods moving, connect communities and improve quality of life. To learn more about infrastructure projects in your community, go to Ontario.ca/BuildON.
