For immediate release
Additional road projects announced for construction season
Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal
Communities across the Island will benefit from road and bridge improvements that will be made during the coming construction season, says Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal Minister Robert Vessey.
When we make strategic investments in our transportation network it carries multiple benefits for Islanders, Minister Vessey said. It makes our roads safer and more efficient, creates jobs and builds our economy, and improves the quality of life in our local communities.
