May 24, 2023 – Government of PEI: Heath MacDonald, Member of Parliament for Malpeque and Ernie Hudson, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure, announced a joint investment of more than $7 million to support two active transportation infrastructure projects that span across PEI.
Funding will support the construction of a 3.1-kilometre active transportation corridor along Route 13 in Brookvale. The addition of 1.2 metres of paved shoulders on each side of the road will provide the public with an easier and safer option to visit popular destinations such as the Confederation Bridge, Cavendish National Park, as well as Mark Arendz Ski Park.
Residents and visitors will also benefit from the rehabilitation of three active transportation corridors at various locations throughout the province for an approximate combined length of 25.9 kilometres.
Adding several kilometres of paved shoulders to Route 20 in Kensington, Route 17 in Lower Montague and Route 15 in Brackley will encourage travellers across the Island to use greener methods of transportation.
