New highway interchange announced for Bridgewater

Bridgewater

The federal and provincial governments have each announced a $20.4 million investment in new highway infrastructure in Bridgewater.

The $48.8 million project includes a new diamond interchange between Exits 12 and 13 which includes ramps, roundabouts, a bridge, and connector roads.

The province says the road through the business park will also be realigned and upgrades will be made to five existing intersections.

The project will also create access to 125 acres of developable land north of Highway 103.

The municipal contribution will make up the remaining $8 million cost.

Bridgewater Mayor David Mitchell says the project will draw new and exciting business to the area, spurring future growth and investment.
