    This section of crumbling concrete road should never have been downloaded to the County. The County needs the combined resources of the Federal and Provincial Governments in order for this road to be completely reconstructed from the base up (which it requires in its current condition), from Picton all the way to the bridge. If it cannot be uploaded back to the Province of Ontario, it should be completed upgraded and rebuilt to Provincial highway standards; the road is that important to Prince Edward County and to the province of Ontario, as it is a major link from the County to Highway 401.

    The time to get this done is now. It’s only going to get worse if we wait and the price is going to escalate the longer we wait.
