Corner Brook spending $3.7 Million on 2016 Paving Program

The City of Corner Brook Asphalt Pavement Program commenced on July 18, 2016 in the Curling area. Under this year’s program the City will spend $3.7 million on paving our city’s streets. As a council we are focused on keeping our commitment to improve city streets to meet the needs of our residents.

 

Allen's Road

This is the largest street paving program in the City’s history. Good roads have undeniable socio-economic benefits, and are essential to our community. As Mayor and Council we committed to focus on improving city streets.

 

Accessing long-term, stable funding for our municipality is essential to achieving this goal. This year’s $3.7 million investment in our streets program combines a $838,886 federal gas tax instalment with our regular capital investment in addition to money set aside from the land sales in the Lundrigan Drive Business Park area which makes for the largest single investment ever in our streets program and which totals $10 million over the past 3 years that this council has been in office.

  1. My street is is in need of repairs. And it needs to be widened at the Fudge’s Road end or made a one way street going down. This end of the road cannot allow two cars to pass.
