ST. STEPHEN, N.B. – Local Mayor Bob Brown says the gateway to the U.S. will be the bypass of New Brunswick if a new international bridge – and four-lane highway – aren’t built soon.
Brown is worried the mostly two-lane Hwy. 1, linking St. Stephen to Saint John, is starting to look less than appealing with new, state-of-the-art highways being built in other areas, such as between Fredericton and Moncton.
“The need to upgrade Hwy. 1 is a major concern and we’re hoping, with assistance from groups from Sussex to St. Stephen, to urge our government to make that a priority. It hasn’t been a priority. It’s been on hold,” says Brown. His hope is to spark construction on a new international bridge that St. Stephen officials are seeking.
