The provincial government has pledged more than $150 million to the Outaouais road network over the next two years.
The goal of the project is to reduce the risk and severity of traffic accidents and will include measures like installing traffic lights and traffic circles, implementing initiatives to protect large wildlife and installing new street lighting.
The program will include 97 construction sites and the province boasts it will create nearly 1,000 jobs in the region.
One of the main projects in the Pontiac is the more than $5 million committed to the rehabilitation of the Félix-Gabriel-Marchand Bridge in Mansfield.
