Clarence-Rockland needs a roads priority list GREGGCHAMBERLAIN

Road in needing extensive improvement. He noted that Albert Street and Caron Road in Rockland are budgeted for upgrad- ing this year. Caron Street’s improvements will be phased in over a couple of years as part of the city’s bypass project in anticipa- tion of future expansion of County Road 17 once the environmental assessment pro- cess for that road is done. Payer noted that Clarence-Rockland council is limited in the amount of road- work it can approve each year because of budget constraints. But administration and staff are trying to make the money available go as far as possible. “You have to go with the money,” he said. “We’re doing what we have for money, and we’re doing a better (road) maintenance program.” He sees creation of a roads priorities list for the infrastructure and public works de- partment as a key part of future works bud- get planning for the city. ”To me, it makes sense,” he said. “Then we will know. That’s the only way we can go.” 3433, ch.

ROCKLAND | Having Bouvier Road make the list for Ontario’s Top Ten Worst Roads locations is not the best news the City of Clarence-Rockland could receive before the start of the summer tourist season. But Coun. Bernard Payer, the new head of the city’s infrastructure advisory commit- tee, says the state of Bouvier Road is better than it was when the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) was compiling the results of its annual online poll of road conditions in the province. Payer also expects that the city will be able to make more progress on improving both Bouvier Road and other rough roads within the municipality once it has a priority list of roadwork needs in place. “The road itself is much better than it was,” Payer said, adding that there are other roads in the city which are equal to Bouvier
