March 15, 2016  By Matt Jones

A Rosslyn, Ont., crane company and its affiliate recently won a contract to rehabilitate the Ozone Creek crossing on Highway 17 east of Nipigon.

L H North Ltd. & L H Crane and Rigging Ltd., based in Rosslyn, Ont., won the $2.186 million contract, said a news release from Ontario’s Ministry of Northern Development and Mines.

Work on the project, which began this spring, is expected to wrap up this fall.

“This project will contribute to keeping the heavily travelled Trans-Canada Highway on Lake Superior’s Northern shore in good condition for both residents and visitors for years to come,” the minister, Michael Gravelle, said in the news release.


The project is part of $134 billion in infrastructure spending the province is funding over the next 10 years.

Last year, L H companies won a $4.4 million contract to replace the Pine River bridge south of Thunder Bay as well as a $5.7 million contract to replace the Canadian Pacific Railway Bridge at Selim, east of Rossport, which is about 190 kilometres northeast of Thunder Bay.
