Prince Edward Island to invest in active transportation corridors across the province
May 26, 2023 By Rock to Road Staff
May 24, 2023, CHARLOTTETOWN – The Governments of Canada and the province of Prince Edward Island are making a joint investment of over $7 million in two active transportation infrastructure projects in the province. Funding comes from an equal investment of $3,519,797 from each government in support of these projects.
The first project concerns the construction of a 3.1-kilometre active transportation corridor across Route 13 in Brookvale, which involves the addition of 1.2 metres of paved shoulder to each side of the road.
A project to rehabilitate three active transportation corridors across the province is also receiving funding and stands at a combined total length of 25.9 kilometres. The rehabilitation involves the addition of paved shoulders to several roads across the province, including Route 20 in Kensington, Route 17 in Lower Montague, and Route 15 in Brackley.
The projects are in support of both the Government of Canada’s Investing in Green Infrastructure Plan, which aims to build more sustainable communities across the country, and their Atlantic Growth Strategy, which seeks to create well-paying middle-class jobs, strengthen local economies, and build inclusive communities.
