VIDEO: One Mile Interchange Officially Open

A ribbon-cutting ceremony officially marking the long-anticipated opening of the One Mile Interchange.

Transportation and Infrastructure Minister Claude Williams, Mayor Mel Norton and Saint John MP Rodney Weston on hand for the event.

Williams says it's unfortunate the project, which cost $83 million, ended up being over budget, but at the end of the day safety is not something they wanted to jeopardize and we now have safe infrastructure.

Mayor Mel Norton says the interchange is exactly the kind of infrastructure we need for the opportunities that are coming.

The interchange will improve the flow of traffic in East Saint John moving some heavy truck traffic off the highway and into the industrial park.
