Feds to flow $52.3 million in infrastructure funding


The federal government has unveiled an agreement with the Yukon government that will allow almost $52.3 million in infrastructure money to flow to 22 projects in the Yukon this year and next.

The deal will cover $890,000 for transit work in Whitehorse and green infrastructure work on water and wastewater systems, including a $5.25 million water project in the village of Mayo, Canadian Press reports.

Only two of the 22 projects will have shovels in the ground this year, with the remainder beginning in 2017, said Currie Dixon, Yukon’s minister of community services. The territory will spend money this year on engineering and design work, he said.
