GRAND FALLS, N.B. – Another 25-kilometre stretch of four lane Trans-Canada Highway in northwestern New Brunswick is now open.
The 25 kilometres of new four lane highway includes a 17.2 kilometre section between Saint-Lonard and Grand Falls, and an 8.1 kilometre bypass at Perth-Andover. Construction of these critical highway improvement projects began in 1999.
The Government of Canada and the Province of New Brunswick jointly shared the cost of the two projects on a 50-50 cost-shared basis.
The Saint-Lonard/Grand Falls project, valued at $79.5 million, included building a major bridge crossing the St. John River at Grand Falls as well as several interchanges and grade separations.
The construction of the Perth/Andover bypass between Perth/Andover and Aroostook, valued at $20.4 million, included twinning the existing Route 2 between the two communities, construction of an interchange at Route 190 and connecting roadways, three new structures and widening a fourth structure to meet current guidelines.
