When I first got elected, getting Rednersville Road fixed became one of my priorities as your MPP and it's still on the white board in my office from my first meeting with Peter Mertens more than three years ago.
Residents of Rednersville Road from Rossmore all the way to Carrying Place have kept this issue at the top of the agenda for me and for their representatives at Shire Hall and I've taken every opportunity I could to press the government to rebuild County Road 3.
After countless questions and letters to the government, I'm proud to announce that the people of Prince Edward County are finally getting the road they deserve. They're getting a ribbon of cement that ties together the people of the County, Belleville and Quinte West. That makes our region stronger and will help grow our population.
County Road 3 is an artery of our local history. In 1798, the Redner family settled in what is now Rednersville. By 1822, the Dempseys had founded Albury just down the road. Roads that intersect with County Road 3 like Weese, Bryant, Dempsey and even Rednersville Road itself bear the names of our earliest settlers making Country Road 3 more than just the gateway to our region. It is the Highway of our history.
