Bobby Morrissey, Member of Parliament for Egmontand the Paula Biggar, Prince Edward Island Minister of Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy, have announced joint support of over $2.6 million for extensive road improvement across the Province.
The federal government is contributing more than $1.1 million through the New Building Canada Fund. The Province of Prince Edward Island (PEI) will cover the remainder.
Work will include resurfacing, widening, and shouldering at five different locations across PEI’s National Highway System, and National Roads and Community Connectors.
These improvements will increase road safety, shorten travel time, and extend the use of overall road network for decades to come.
