Montreal-Boston corridor funding announced

PIKE RIVER, QUE. — Representatives of the federal and Quebec governments have announced funding for phase three of the Highway 35 extension on the Montreal-Boston corridor.

The route is currently served by highways except for a 13.4-kilometre segment on Route 133, indicated a June 10 statement.

The third phase of the project will construct an 8.9-kilometre highway segment between the Route 133 interchange at Saint-Sebastien and the interchange north of Saint-Armand.

It will include two lanes in each direction on two separate carriageways.

The fourth and final 4.5-kilometre phase up to the American border will then complete the highway connection.

Once finished, the project will establish a direct link between Highway 35 and Interstate 89 on the corridor towards New England.

The federal government will contribute $82 million towards phase three of the project, sourced from the New Building Canada Fund-Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component-National and Regional.

The overall cost of phase three will be determined at the end of the project planning phase, the statement said.
