Infrastructure Projects

Every summer Ontario Northland undertakes critical infrastructure work along the railway to ensure we meet industry safety standards and continue to provide safe, reliable and efficient transportation services to communities and businesses in the North.

Our top priority is to mitigate disruptions to communities and businesses as much as possible as this work is completed.

Please see the list below for projects impacting your community.

By investing in our rail infrastructure, we are keeping supply chains strong, and contributing to economic development in the north.
