St. Croix, Nova Scotia – A new four-lane section of twinned road has opened on one of Nova Scotia’s most-travelled highways. The new 7.4-kilometre section runs between St. Croix and Three Mile Plains on Highway 101.
The $22 million project, funded jointly by the federal and provincial governments, took five years to complete. Twinning on Highway 401 between Falmouth and Avonport was completed in 2008, while future work on the highway includes the section between Three Mile Plains and Falmouth.
The paving between St. Croix and Three Mile Plains is part of a $310 million investment in highways this fiscal year, the second-largest highway improvement budget in Nova Scotia’s history.
