The Town of Bracebridge has approved one-hundred-thousand-dollars in reserve funding to fix small urban and rural roads. In 2013, a roads needs study was done for the municipality of Bracebridge, which determined the conditions of roads. Over 300 km were assessed. Bracebridge Deputy Mayor Rick Maloney says the problem with the report is that it missed roads with a lower level of traffic.

Maloney says the approval of reserve funding will go towards fixing the roads that were not included in the study. He also adds that this is just the beginning and much more funding is required.  Town staff has the list of roads in need of repair and will be making a suggestion to council in the near future.
