Highway upgrade for Quebec
First publishedon www.WorldHighways.com
Canada's Henri IV road will be widened and upgraded in a project worth US$413.6 million ($400 million). The road is located in West Quebec and work is not expected to commence until 2013. Quebec's Ministry of Transport has explained that the Henry IV road will be widened as this will be more effective at reducing congestion as well as being cheaper than the alternative, which would have been to extend the Félix-Leclerc highway. This analysis of the comparative benefits of the Henry IV project came from a report by the engineering firm Genivar.
