The Government of Nova Scotia has announced a significant step forward in the twinning of its 100-series highways network with a $195 million investment for the twinning of Highway 104.

The federal government is contributing $90 million to the project, which will see 38 kilometres twinned between Sutherland’s River, Pictou Co. and Antigonish.

“Nova Scotians want us to improve the safety of our roads and we are committed to doing just that,” said Premier Stephen McNeil. “Highway 104 is an essential piece of infrastructure connecting communities in our province and our province to the rest of the country. I’m pleased our federal partners are working with us on this project that will make the highway safer and create jobs.”

The project will include a new 10-kilometre, four-lane alignment between Barneys River and James River, south of the existing Highway 104, made necessary by the area’s topography and terrain as well as a river and rail line.

“Twinning and upgrading Highway 104 is about improving road safety, […] and making it easier for people – and products – to move across the province and the country,” said Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Construction is anticipated to begin in early 2020 with the goal to have that portion of Highway 104 twinned by 2024.
