New section of Route 95 opens in New Brunswick
Woodstock, New Brunswick – A 14-km highway project has been officially opened in Woodstock, New Brunswick, providing a more efficient flow of goods between Atlantic Canada and the U.S. Representatives of the provincial and federal governments opened the newly-twinned Route 95 between Woodstock, N.B. and Houlton, Maine.
The $33 million project was jointly funded by the two governments, with federal funding provided through the Canada Strategic Infrastructure Fund. The international border crossing at Woodstock is New Brunswick’s busiest commercial crossing, and a key trade corridor between Atlantic Canada and the northeastern U.S. The twinning of Route 95 was endorsed by all four Atlantic Provinces as an important support to regional trade and the economy of the entire region.
The new route is a four-lane divided highway that includes a new interchange at the Route 540 intersection and a grade separation at Plymouth Road.
