The Prince Edward Island government needs funding for a Cornwall bypass, which is still on the provincial government’s to-do list, reports The Guardian.
The province’s Transportation Minister Robert Vessey said it’s waiting to see if there will be federal funding available for it.
Vessey said it’s an issue that has come up a few times over the years, but the province needs to see what will be available in the new Building Canada Fund.
Preliminary plans for the proposed bypass would see it move away from the current route at some point near the North River causeway and divert traffic away from the businesses and houses in Cornwall’s centre.
Vessey said estimates put the cost at about $45 million in today’s dollars, but he stressed everything was still very preliminary.
