July 23, 2019, Sherbrooke, Que. - The Honourable François-Philippe Champagne, minister of infrastructure and communities, and François Bonnardel, Quebec's minister of transport and minister responsible for the Estrie region, announced the start of construction on the third and final component of Phase II of the Highway 410 extension.

"I am pleased to highlight the start of this important work on Highway 410, which makes up the final step in the extension of this key infrastructure for the Estrie region. This project will not only benefit the regional economy, but will also improve the safety of users and facilitate their travel. We have ambition for our regions and are making investments to equip them with the modern and efficient infrastructure needed to ensure their long-term prosperity," said Champagne.

Totalling $32 million, work on Component 3 consists in building nearly 4 km of highway between where Highway 410 currently ends (at the Route 108 interchanges) and the new roundabout on Route 108 (near Glenday Road). Work on the new divided highway – with two lanes in each direction – will also include the construction of some structures, including bridges and culverts.

Phase II work is being done over a three-year period, from 2018 to 2021, at an estimated cost of $75 million. The Government of Canada is contributing up to $37.2 million to this project through the New Building Canada Fund – Provincial-Territorial Infrastructure Component – National and Regional Projects. The Government of Quebec is providing $37.8 million.

"Providing Quebeckers with reliable road infrastructure to serve their communities and facilitate development is at the heart of the Department's mission, which it is wholly fulfilling with the extension of Highway 410," said Bonnardel. "The start of construction on the third component of the project marks the culmination of a process that began 10 years ago: providing Sherbrooke with an urban connection that allows it not only to connect its two university hubs, but also provides easier access to the commercial centre while improving traffic conditions."
