St. Stephen, New Brunswick – A new 23-kilometre section of highway in New Brunswick was officially opened yesterday. The newly constructed highway section is part of a larger project to complete the twinning and rehabilitation of Route 1, the construction of a new border crossing facility, and a new international bridge between St. Stephen and Calais. Twenty-three kilometres of four-lane highway on Route 1 between Church Street (St. Stephen) and Route 127 (Waweig River) were opened to traffic today. The international bridge is expected to be open in summer 2009.
