October 22, 2016 – Beech Hill, Nova Scotia
The Honourable Randy Delorey, Nova Scotia Minister of Finance, on behalf of the Honourable Goff MacLellan, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure renewal and Sean Fraser, Member of Parliament for Central Nova, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, today officially opened the Highway 104 twinning project to traffic.
The multi-phased Highway 104 project is a 14.5-kilometre new four-lane highway that stretches from west of Addington Forks Road to the east point of Taylors Road, Antigonish County. It will improve safety, ease congestion and cut travel time for drivers.
The cost of the project was $159 million. The Government of Canada contributed $55 million from the Building Canada Fund, with the province contributing the remaining $104 million.
"We’re proud to open this road to traffic after 20 years of planning, design, and construction. The 100 series highway system is the backbone of our road network. It helps us get our goods to market more efficiently, improves the safety of our motorists and stimulates our economy."
The Honourable Randy Delorey
Nova Scotia Minister of Finance, on behalf of the Honourable Goff MacLellan, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure
"The Government of Canada is pleased to partner with the Province of Nova Scotia in supporting projects that make roads safer and more efficient for residents, visitors, shippers, and truck drivers. Helping businesses move their goods to market will stimulate economic growth, help grow the middle class and foster long-term prosperity."
