The Proposed Project
The New Brunswick Department of Transportation and Infrastructure, along with the Maine Department of Transportation are proposing to replace the International Bridge over the Saint John River between Edmundston, New Brunswick, and Madawaska, Maine, in the United States. As proposed, the Madawaska-Edmundston International Bridge Replacement Project would involve building the new bridge from the existing Canadian port of entry to a new port of entry on the American side.
