The Governments of Canada and Ontario say they are investing over $50 million to extend Sudbury’s Maley Drive to reduce congestion and commute times and support regional economic development .
The project will create a new east-west transportation corridor in Sudbury.
Canada and Ontario will each provide up to $26.7 million of the total eligible costs, with the City of Sudbury responsible for the remainder of the $80.1 million project costs.
Work will include the construction of new four-lane roads, the widening of lanes from four to six and the restoration of existing roads. The project is expected to create nearly 800 jobs and generate close to $90 million for Ontario’s economy by improving access to local businesses and the transportation of mining goods..
