November 9, 2016 – Halifax
The Honourable Mark Furey, on behalf of the Honourable Goff MacLellan, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure renewal and Bernadette Jordan, Member of Parliament for South Shore-St. Margarets, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities, have officially opened the Highway 103 Broad River to Port Joli project to traffic.
The two-phased Highway 103 project includes the construction of two new sections of two-lane, two-way controlled access highway between Broad River and Port Joli totaling 10 kilometres. It also includes three at-grade intersections and two new bridges over Broad River and Douglas Brook.
The cost of the project is estimated at $38.9 million. The Government of Canada contributed $16.5 million from the Building Canada Fund, with the province contributing the remaining amount.
"While these projects take time to complete, we are committed to ongoing improvements to our 100 series highways. The Highway 103 project will improve safety along this stretch of highway. By reducing traffic volumes, including the number of commercial vehicles, the existing highway will be safer for residents of the Port Mouton area."
The Honourable Mark Furey
Minister of Business, on behalf of the Honourable Goff MacLellan, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure
"Transportation and distribution are a vital part of our local, regional and national economies. These upgrades will support the continued growth of industry, helping local businesses get their goods to market faster and more efficiently, while reducing congestion and improving safety for the thousands of residents, visitors and shippers who use this highway daily."
Member of Parliament for South Shore-St. Margarets, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities
