Except for the crumbling concrete these days. But yes, a good example of how road development has not kept pace with the growth within HRM.

The fact that the Bedford Highway is not at least 4 lanes for it's entirety speaks to that.

An option looked at in the 102 corridor study:

Love the old speed limit signs.
Thanks for those - I have seen them before on the HRM archives but not the ones in your previous post.

It is significant how forward-thinking the province/city was in the 1950s and 1960s in developing modern road networks back when traffic volumes did not require them.

It's also telling, as has been pointed out, that there have been almost no improvements to those road networks since then. It seems as though there was a move away from large infrastructure projects in the Halifax area from the 1970s through the present. Even the Burnside-Sackville extension was being planned and surveyed back in the 1980s and is only now having construction work done on it.

Not just a bigger loop from one freeway to another again...
I feel that the improvement of interchange with 103 was a missed opportunity. There could have been a flyover from 102N to 103W.

This design is not happening, I just dug it up from 10 years ago to show what they envisioned at the time.

This is a decent design. It fixes some of the challenges that make the interchange horrible.

The chances of NSDOT doing a flyover is slim to nil. Remember, they build super 2s when a 4 lane is needed.
