SUTHERLANDS RIVER – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is announcing a major investment to improve safety and reduce congestion on the Trans-Canada Highway 104 here.

Just a few minutes ago, Trudeau announced an investment of $90 million to improve safety, reduce congestion  and increase traffic capacity on the highway.

The project, led by the Government of Nova Scotia, will improve a 38-kilometre stretch of Highway 104, from Sutherlands River to Antigonish, by twinning and upgrading 28 kilometres of the highway. It will also include a new 10-kilometre, four-lane highway, to be connected to the existing roadway once completed. The Government of Nova Scotia is contributing $195 million to the project.
