The Governments of Canada and Nova Scotia have announced $20 million in federal-provincial funding to replace the antiquated Highway 102/103 interchange.
The new interchange will be build next to the old junction to allow for continued traffic flow during its construction. The new structure will feature design improvements to increase the safety, efficiency and mobility of all highway traffic.
“The new 102/103 interchange will benefit both business and families on the road,” said Iain Rankin, MLA for Timberlea-Prospect. “It will improve the commute to and from downtown Halifax, ensuring infrastructure investment keeps up with the future growth of our communities. By working collaboratively with our federal partners, Nova Scotia is continuing to build modern infrastructure that will help all of our communities grow and prosper.”
The Government of Canada is contributing up to $9,405,000 to this project while the Government of Nova Scotia is providing $10,595,000.
