The Ontario government is replacing nine aging provincial police detachments, with construction set to start this fall.

The province says it will spend 182 million dollars to build the new facilities, located in Moosonee, Fort Frances, Hawkesbury, Huron County, West Parry Sound, Manitoulin Island, Mississauga, Marathon and Orillia.

The detachment in Huron County is located in Clinton.

The contract to design, build and finance the new facilities has been awarded to Bird Construction.

The province says bundling the construction under one project helps save money by getting bulk pricing on materials.
