Description

This is to advise that on July 7, 2017, Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal registered the Highway 107 Burnside to Bedford Project for environmental assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.

The purpose of the proposed project is to extend Highway 107 linking the Burnside Business Park to the Bedford area and Highway 102, in Halifax County, Nova Scotia. The proposed highway extension project is four-lane in width, and is approximately 9 kilometers (km) from Akerley Boulevard and Burnside Drive to the west of Duke Street. The project also proposes to widen approximately 1.5 km of Duke Street that leads to Highway 102. Detailed design of the project is expected to be completed in 2018 but some construction could be initiated in the fall of 2017. It is anticipated that construction will take approximately five years.
