The Township of Uxbridge plans to press ahead with the replacement of the Brock St. culvert, it's largest infrastructure project to date, pegged at $17 million. The culvert is expected to reduce the risk of flooding in the downtown core while lifting much of the area out of the flood plain. Ground was officially broken on the project in September, however, delays have complicated it's advancement. Last month, land acquisition negotiations for a parcel of land needed for it's completion fell through. Mayor Dave Barton has said Council will be moving forward to secure the land in the new year.
