This is to advise that on November 6, 2020, Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal registered an Additional Information Addendum for the Highway 102 Aerotech Connector Road Project for environmental assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.

The proposed Project involves the construction, maintenance and post-construction monitoring of a 5-kilometer (km) Connector Road from Highway 102 Aerotech Interchange (Exit 5A) to Trunk 2 in Wellington near Sunnylea Road. The Connector is designed as a four lane road but will be built with two main travel lanes with an additional climbing lane in some road segments, an active transportation trail offset from the road, access to each parcel of land between Highway 102 and the old Holland Road (total of 3 intersections), roundabout at the ramp terminal at Exit 5A, and roundabout at the intersection with Trunk 2. The Project construction may commence in 2020 and is expected to be completed within 5 years. The addendum includes additional information regarding alternative road routes, water resources and acid drainage.
