Closure of Route 11 Section

The closure is due to ongoing construction of the twinning of Route 11. The travelling public should expect significant delays in the area, especially during peak hours.

Northbound traffic from Route 15 and Route 132 will use the exit ramp for Main Street to Shediac, turn left at the first intersection on Route 133, then left onto Route 134, returning to Route 11 via the existing ramp at the Route 134 interchange. Temporary traffic signals will be installed at the intersection of Route 133 and Route 134.

Southbound traffic on Route 11 heading toward Moncton will take Exit 2 for Route 134 and continue straight on a newly constructed detour, then take a service road to Route 15. Southbound traffic heading toward Shediac or continuing eastbound on Route 15 towards PEI will turn left on Route 134 and follow the same detour as the northbound traffic to the exit ramp to Main Street, which will serve as a two-way detour.

Expect some lane reductions and traffic pattern changes in the days leading up to the route closure. Signage will be in place to indicate the detour route.

Those travelling north of Shediac to/from Moncton are strongly advised to use alternate routes such as Route 134 (Shediac Road), Route 115 (Elmwood Drive) or Route 126.
