Bryenton residents to benefit from a more reliable road with the paving of Route 108


BRYENTON, NB, Aug. 29, 2019 /CNW/ - Investing in public infrastructure supports efficient transportation networks that help Canadians stay safe on the roads while allowing efficient access to work, school, and community.

Today, Pat Finnigan, Member of Parliament for Miramichi?Grand Lake, on behalf of the Honourable Bernadette Jordan, Minister of Rural Economic Development; and the Honourable Jake Stewart, Minister of Aboriginal Affairs announced funding for the paving of approximately 1.9 kilometres of Route 108, in Bryenton toward Parker Road.
