March 20, 2018 – The governments of Canada and Quebec are investing in transportation infrastructure throughout the province to improve the flow of goods and all road users.
Funding was recently announced from the governments of Canada and Quebec for Phase II of the Highway 410 extension in Sherbrooke. The Government of Canada is contributing up to $37.2 million of the over $75-million (estimated) project cost. The remaining costs will be covered by the Government of Quebec. The federal funding comes from the New Building Canada Fund, Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component—National and Regional Projects.
“We are proud to be announcing funding of this magnitude for Highway 410, a key piece of transportation infrastructure in the Estrie Region,” said Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie and Member of Parliament for Compton–Stanstead, on behalf of the Honourable Amarjeet Sohi, Minister of Infrastructure and Communities. “Eagerly awaited by residents, this extension will greatly improve safety and traffic flow in the heart of Lennoxville.”
Phase II of the Highway 410 extension consists of building a four-kilometre stretch between Highway 108-143 and Highway 108 in Lennoxville, Que. This last stage of the project also includes rearranging 1.6 kilometres of Highway 108 between Spring and Glenday roads. Once completed, this work will allow road users to travel more efficiently and spend more time with their families.
“The completion of phase II of the Highway 410 project will add a total distance of 13 kilometres and form a vital suburban link for Sherbrooke,” said André Fortin, Minister of Transport, Sustainable Mobility and Transport Electrification. “The extension will reduce congestion in downtown Lennoxville, improving traffic flow and user safety.”
