The funding will go toward making the four corners at High and Victoria Streets in Southampton completely accessible through re-grading of sidewalks and other improvements.  The intersection is widely used as the gateway to Fairy Lake, which is used throughout the summer as a concert and activities venue and also given that there are churches on three of the corners.

The project is equally funded by the Federal Government and the municipality of Saugeen Shores, which had already approved the expenditure subject to funding.

It is anticipated that work will begin in the spring once a contractor has been hired for the required concrete work.
