Project timeline

The planning, design and construction of this multi-phased project is scheduled to take place from fall 2015 into the coming years, pending council approval of annual budgets.

  • With the Main Street loop completed, and further development happening in the Hamlet of Ardrossan, the bridge crossing Point-Aux-Pins Creek needs to be replaced. The narrow bridge is not built to accommodate the increased demands. The scope of this project component consists of upgrading the current Point-Aux-Pins Creek Bridge into a 9.0m two-lane, rural, standard collector road with a 3.0m asphalt trail located on the west side of the new bridge.
