On May 8, 2017, Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal registered the Highway 101 Twinning Three Mile Plains to Falmouth Project for environmental assessment, in accordance with Part IV of the Environment Act.
The purpose of the proposed project is to twin and upgrade an existing two-lane section of Highway 101 from Trunk 14 (Exit 5) at Three Mile Plains to an area 2.5 km west of the Falmouth Connector (Exit 7) in Hants County, Nova Scotia. The existing highway section to be upgraded and twinned is approximately 9.5 kilometers. The project also includes upgrading of an existing tidal gate structure (aboiteau) at the Avon River causeway. 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.
On or before June 27, 2017 the Minister of Environment will decide if the project can be granted conditional environmental assessment approval.
Public comments on the Registration will be accepted until June 7, 2017. Comments can be submitted in the following ways:
