A groundbreaking ceremony was recently held for the second phase of the Highway 104 project in Antigonish, N.S.

The second phase of the project will include: the building of eight kilometers of four-lane, divided highway between Beech Hill Road and Taylor Road. This phase of the project is expected to cost approximately $88.4-million and be completed by fall 2015.

The Province of Nova Scotia is contributing $58.4 million of the funding while the federal government is contributing $30 million.

Phase 1 of the four-lane highway project began back in 2009 and is still ongoing. The first phase of the project involves the construction of eight kilometers of four-lane, divided highway that runs from west of Addington Forks Road to east of Beech Hill Road, at a cost of approximately $74.9 million. Phase 1 is expected to open to the public this month.
