Controlled Access Highway in Digby Opens


Travellers now have a safer road to drive on through Digby County.

The controlled access highway from Digby to Marshalltown officially opened today, Aug 28.

“Improvements to this highway will help families, residents and visitors reach their destinations more safely and efficiently. "This is an important step in continuing the controlled access highway between Digby and Weymouth,” said Environment Minister Gordon Wilson, on behalf of Lloyd Hines, Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal.

The project includes four kilometres of controlled access highway from Exit 26 to Marshalltown, a new interchange into Digby and a new multi-trail bridge over the highway in Conway that opened in September 2018.


I am very pleased to see the first phase of the completion of Highway 101 from Exit 26 to Weymouth North. It is very important to the residents to see the completion of this highway from a safety perspective and look forward to seeing phase two started in the near future. Jimmy MacAlpine, warden for Municipality of the District of Digby
