The Trans Labrador Highway has been one of the most significant infrastructure projects in the province’s history. The road spans close to 12,000 kilometres and over 500 kilometres has been paved. The paving and widening of this major piece of transportation infrastructure, the first continuous connection across Labrador, will connect residents with jobs, products, and economic opportunities.

In July of 2016, the federal and provincial governments announced more than $63 million in joint funding to pave an additional 160 kilometres of the highway’s gravel surface. The total estimated cost of this project is $63,893,500, with $31,671,750 coming from the Government of Canada through the New Building Canada Fund’s Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component-National and Regional Projects and $32,221,750 coming from the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
