Moving forward on Headingley bypass

  • Print

The first step in the twinning of CentrePort Canada Way and construction of a Headingley bypass has been taken, according to Infrastructure and Transportation Minister Steve Ashton.

In a news release, the minister said preliminary engineering work is finished and detailed engineering work and public consultations on route selection will begin after the province acquires a parcel of land owned by the Department of National Defence and used as a rifle range.

CentrePort Canada Way will be doubled and the four-lane divided expressway will be extended from the Trans-Canada Highway at PTH 26, near St. Francois Xavier, to the existing portion of CentrePort Canada Way. This new bypass will move traffic off the current Trans-Canada section that passes through the RM of Headingley.

The project is estimated to cost over $150 million. Depending on the land acquisition required, construction will be completed as part of the province’s five-year infrastructure plan.

Upgrades to the Trans-Canada Highway in Headingley, including intersection improvements and dividing the highway, are continuing. The section of road between John Blumberg and Coverall roads, which includes new lights at Cameron Street, will be completed this summer.
