Ottawa-Nfld split Trans-Canada restoration bill

ST. JOHN’S — About $48-million in highway rehabilitation and restoration along Route 1 in Newfoundland will be shared by the provincial government and Transport Canada.

The project consists of 21 highway and bridge rehabilitation and reconstruction components along the Trans-Canada, the only major road link between Port aux Basques in the western part of Newfoundland and St. John’s in the Avalon Peninsula.

The project, which is scheduled for completion by March 31, 2008, involves:

Pavement rehabilitation of 10 sections of the Trans-Canada, totaling approximately 211 km; replacement of Junction Brook Bridge, Flat Bay Brook Bridge and River Brook Bridge, as well as maintenance and restoration of six other bridges; completion of a diamond interchange at Little Rapids; and repairs to a retaining wall near Shellbird Island.
