TWO MILE BROOK (CNB) - The provincial government in investing more than $800,000 in three infrastructure projects in the Tantramar region.

Construction has started on the replacement of a large culvert on Route 106 at Two Mile Brook between Dorchester and Sackville.

"This location is closed to traffic until July 30 while crews undertake this important work," said Transportation Minister Denis Landry. "Detour signs will be posted in key locations to inform motorists of the alternate route. This project is estimated to cost about $240,000."

Landry highlighted two other projects:

The roads at all three locations will be closed during construction. Each replacement will take six to eight weeks to complete. Funding comes from the Department of Transportation's 2010-11 capital budget.

"As part of our $439.3-million capital budget, we are helping put people to work, support the economy and making roads and bridges safer and more efficient for the residents of the Tantramar region and throughout New Brunswick," said Landry. "I encourage the travelling public to be safe and be aware of the construction zones, reduce their speeds and adjust their travel times to get to their appointments and destinations."
