Highway 101 Extension - Digby to Weymouth North

Project Status

Withdrawn. Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Public Works withdrew the project on November 24, 2003.

Description

A full diamond interchange is proposed at the current Highway 101 and Trunk 1 intersection, and Brooks Road will be realigned. An overpass tunnel is proposed at the Gilbert's Cove Road and French Road crossings. A full diamond interchange is proposed at North Range Cross Road. An overpass tunnel is proposed at the Bloomfield Cross Road crossing. Marshalltown Road will be severed (adequate access will remain from other local roads in the area). An underpass structure will be constructed at the existing Highway 101 crossing. The new highway will merge into the existing highway network at the Digby interchange. Slight realignment of the west side ramps, and realignment of the existing highway to Beechwood Lane (the original Trunk 1 highway) and Acacia Valley Road with a new intersection at Route 303 are proposed.

The Department of Transportation and Public Works considers the proposed Highway 101 as an integral and necessary element of the future transportation network serving not only the Digby to Weymouth North area, but province wide as well.
