Service roads providing local access to Highway 11 are being upgraded to accommodate more traffic, which has increased since the expansion of Highway 11 was completed in 2012.

Minister of Northern Development and Mines Michael Gravelle says by investing in highway infrastructure through the Northern Highways Program, we are improving travel, increasing safety, and creating jobs that support local economies.

Teranorth Construction and Engineering has been awarded the $7.3-million contract and work will begin this spring with completion scheduled for fall 2014.
