Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal registered the Highway 104 Twinning Sutherlands River to Antigonish Project for environmental assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.
The purpose of the Project involves the twinning of Highway 104 between Sutherlands River (Pictou County) and Addington Forks (Antigonish County). The Project alignment is approximately 38 kilometers and will include twinning two segments of the existing alignment (approximately 28 kilometers), in addition to the construction of a new four‐lane highway (approximately 10 Kilometers) diverging to the south from the present alignment near Barneys River Station and reconnecting west of Exit 30. The Project construction may commence in 2019 and is expected to be completed within 5 years.
From December 6, 2018, all project information including the Registration Document is available on the Nova Scotia Environment website at http://www.novascotia.ca/nse/ea/.

On or before February 4, 2019, the Minister of Environment will decide if the project can be granted conditional environmental assessment approval. All submissions received, including personal information, will be made available for public review upon request.
