Route 11 provides links to Quebec, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, the rest of New Brunswick and the United States, as well as access to ports, airports and rail hubs.

The provincial and federal governments are investing over $180 million to twin two sections of New Brunswick’s Route 11.

Construction will begin this summer with the twinning of 6.8 kilometres between Shediac River and Cocagne River, and another 13.8 kilometres between Cocagne River and Little Bouctouche River. The project is anticipated to be complete in fall 2021.

The work is part of the $272 million federal-provincial construction project, which also includes an 11-kilometre two-lane controlled access bypass from Glenwood to Miramichi.

“The Government of Canada is proud to invest in the twinning of Route 11, which will support long-term prosperity for the region and improve the quality of life for New Brunswickers,” said Fisheries, Oceans and Canadian Coast Guard Minister Dominic LeBlanc.
