Councillors Encourage Residents to attend Public Consultation for Interchange at Larry Uteck Boulevard

(Tuesday, December 2, 2008) A public consultation session for a new interchange on Highway 102 (Bicentennial Highway) at Larry Uteck Boulevard, between Kearney Lake Road (Exit 2) and Hammonds Plains Road (Exit 3) is being held December 3, 2008, at 6:00 pm at the Beaubassin School.

The Larry Uteck Interchange is a critical piece of transportation infrastructure which is needed to meet the outcomes of the HRM Regional Plan. It will provide an additional access/egress in Bedford South and Royale Hemlock Estates developments. The interchange will also help reduce congestion on the Bedford Highway and allow for an additional access to/from Highway 102 for motorists traveling this 100 series highway, as well as, the Bedford Highway.

"There has been a great deal of interest and concern about the growing congestion on Bedford Highway," says Councillor Debbie Hum, District 16, Rockingham-Wentworth. "This infrastructure is badly needed and will be greatly appreciated."

A recommended plan has been developed and will be presented at the session. Staff from the Province of Nova Scotia's Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal and the Halifax Regional Municipality will be available to answer questions.

Tim Outhit, Councillor for District 21, Bedford, adds, "We are strongly encouraging people to attend this session. By working together, we can find solutions that will serve all of us well into the future."

When:     Wednesday, December 3, 2008
Where:    Beaubassin School, 54 Larry Uteck Boulevard, Halifax

Doors open at 6:00 pm, presentation at 6:30 pm and an informal open house from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
