Funding Approval

March 13, 2019

Council is pleased to announce that funding has been approved to complete the Engineering for the Causeway Bridge replacement. Mayor Russell joined MHA Holloway today to announce this crucial first step towards resolving the causeway bridge replacement.

Funding for the engineering work will be provided under a 80/20 funding arrangement between the Department of Municipal Affairs and Council.

The engineering will include hydrological study, geotechnical, DFO consultation, site surveys, structure replacement options, cost estimates, detailed design and tender documents. An RFP for engineering consultant services will be issued within the next week or two. The engineering work will be completed in 2019.

Council continues to discuss funding options for the causeway replacement with Government with a hope to have construction start in 2020 pending a satisfactory funding arrangement.
