Cash for NS highway twinning announced

HALIFAX — About nine kilometres on Hwy 125 and Hwy 104 in Nova Scotia will be twinned as both federal and provincial governments have agreed to kick-in $32 million for the projects.

According to the Halifax Chronicle Herald, construction could begin as early as the fall on a five-kilometre section of Cape Breton’s Hwy. 125 from Balls Creek, west of Sydney, running southeast to Sydney River. And on Hwy. 104, a 3.6-kilometre stretch from east of New Glasgow to east of Sutherlands River will also be twinned.

Highway 104 will eventually be divided into four lanes from the New Brunswick border to Sutherlands River, reports the paper.
