Sometimes the new need a shiny coat. This corridor safety improvement project in New Brunswick carried an intensive context-sensitive approach that included extensive public-outreach efforts. It consisted of four new grade-separated interchanges with express lanes. At the center of it all was the reconstruction of the George Street Bridge. Multiuse pathways and pedestrian bridges have reconnected Boyd Park to the city.
