Trans-Canada Highway Realignment Through New Haven-Bonshaw, Queen's County, PEI

The Minister of the Environment has designated this project and the environmental assessment will continue under the former Canadian Environmental Assessment Act.

The Prince Edward Island Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal (PEITIR) proposes to construct a two lane highway realignment of the Trans Canada Highway (TCH) connecting New Haven and Bonshaw, Queens County, PEI. This Project is a transportation infrastructure improvement initiative by the province under the Gateways and Border Crossing Fund.

The TCH Realignment Project consists of 6.2 km of new and upgraded highway from the St., Catherines Road in Bonshaw to just east of the West River Road in New Haven. The Project will overlap approximately 500 m of existing highway and included the installation of four new watercourse crossings and the widening of the Bonshaw Bridge from two lanes to three lanes. Turning lanes will be added to the highway in nine locations. Project construction is expected to commence in the Fall of 2012 and last for approximately one year, work will be carried out in 8 phases. The Environmental Assessment is coordinated with province of Prince Edward Island.
