Plaunt Street South in Renfrew will undergo major work next year, to the tune of $1.9-million.

The announcement was made Thursday (June 9) and the tab will be paid through a joint effort with municipal, provincial, and federal funding. Each level of government will contribute $633,685 to the project through the Canada-Ontario Small Communities Fund.

The work will include replacing the century-old watermain, storm drainage, sewers  and sidewalks.

The project will focus on the area from Hall to Railway avenues along Plaunt Street, about a half kilometre in total.

Work will begin next year, and is expected to be wrapped up by the fall of 2016.
