“Investing in our transportation network is a priority of our government,” said Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Bill Fraser. “Our government is pleased to partner with the three municipalities to improve infrastructure for the travelling public while stimulating the local economy and building the environment for job creation.”
The upgrades include:
- in Grand Bay-Westfield – curb and gutter work will be completed on Route 177, from Garden Road to Allingham Terrace, as well as storm sewer, curb and gutter work on Route 177, from Ononette Road to Jordan Lane;
- in Saint John – Route 111 (Saint Martins Road) will be paved from Loch Lomond Road to the city limit; and
- in Rothesay – curb and gutter work as well as paving will be completed on Route 100 (Rothesay Road) from Rothesay Corner to East Riverside Kingshurt Park.
Under the Municipal Designated Highway Program, municipalities apply to the provincial government for funding assistance for capital upgrades. The provincial government is investing $25 million in funding for priority projects as part of this year’s program.
