The project includes: approximately 10 km of new, four-lane divided highway; 28 km of twinning existing highway; two new interchanges; 24 new bridges; upgrading and repaving of the existing two-lane section to like-new condition; and environmental enhancements including wildlife corridors and fencing. The twinning project that will make Highway 104 safer for motorists and improve the efficiency of one of the province’s most important transportation corridors is well underway.
