SYDNEY, NS - Cyclists and pedestrians will have a safer path through one of Sydney's busiest intersections.
The provincial government has confirmed they will construct an overpass over the 125 highway to connect downtown Sydney and the Grand Lake Road multi-use trail at the Mayflower Mall. The overpass is part of the municipality's Active Transportation Plan, but its future was in doubt as the province was opposed to constructing it.
