The Province of Nova Scotia, federal and local governments are providing $2.8 million to construct a roundabout at McClures Mills Road and Willow Street in the Town of Truro.
A construction contract for the roundabout will be tendered by the Town of Truro.
“As a government, we are committed to road safety, and this investment will help to ease traffic congestion in a safe and efficient manner for motorists in the Truro area,” said David Ritcey, MLA for Truro-Bible Hill-Millbrook-Salmon River, on behalf of Public Works Minister Kim Masland. “Improving the flow of traffic at this busy three-way intersection will improve productivity for the local business community and support future growth of the town’s industrial park.”
The project will be designed to ease the current traffic congestion for about 40,000 vehicles passing through daily and is expected to be completed by late 2024.
“Construction of the McClures Mills Road and Willow Street roundabout announced today is one of many meaningful infrastructure projects we invest in with our partners across Canada,” said Sean Fraser, minister of housing, infrastructure and communities. “This investment will help people get where they need to go safely in Truro and will improve the commutes of the many Nova Scotians who will use this daily.”
