The district of Port de Grave was the focal point of two government funding announcements today totalling some $5.3 million for the area.

Newfoundland and Labrador

Minister for Municipal Affairs Dan Crummell and MHA Glenn Littlejohn were on hand to make the announcements in the district.

Some $1.4 million in capital works funding that will be used towards infrastructure upgrades.

The largest portion, $600,000, will be used for upgrades to Mint Cove Road and the intersection of the Conception Bay Highway and Perry’s Hill in the Town of Spaniard’s Bay. An additional $247,000 was allotted for sewage treatment system upgrades for the town.

Clarke’s Beach will receive $422,000 for water and sewer upgrades to Wilsonville Avenue, and $136,000 will be used for St. Andrew’s Lane and Meadow Road in Upper Island Cove.

The Town of Bay Roberts, the largest municipality in Conception Bay North, will see $3.9 million in cost-shared, multi-year funding.

Although details were not provided on specific projects that the money would go, funding was said to be going towards road improvements and water and sewer upgrades.
