The provincial government announced today that tenders are being called for road upgrades along the Trans Canada Highway (TCH) from Crooked Feeder to Hampden Intersection on the west coast of the province.
The work also will include brush clearing and roadside rehabilitation from Fischells River Bridge to Crabbes River Bridge.
"These tenders highlight two of our key goals when roadwork is issued - increasing driver experience, and enhancing road safety," Transportation Minister Tom Hedderson said.
The tender for road upgrades is for the milling and paving of the TCH from Crooked Feeder towards the Hampden Intersection for approximately 20.4 km.
The brush clearing tender is for the TCH just east of Fischell's River Bridge to Crabbes River Bridge for a distance of approximately 20 km. In addition, a tender for highway upgrades along this section of the TCH will be called in the coming weeks.
These two projects are being cost-shared 50/50 between the provincial and federal governments under the major infrastructure component of the federal Building Canada Fund.

Organizations: Trans Canada Highway, Building Canada Fund

Geographic location: River Bridge, Fischell

    You have pavement! WoW, we still have dirt roads for our main highways. Guess all that tax that we pay is shipped to the island and the rest of the province is forgot about. Maybe we should forget to submit our taxes this year.
