A-73 expansion
« on: March 14, 2009, 03:05:47 PM »

Does anyone know when or if they're going to expand A-73 south of St. Georges to US-201 and to the north, a possible interchange with A-70?

The unofficial extension website:  http://www.geocities.com/autoroute73/highway.html

Well to A-70 maybe a few decades according to my Quebec map.

Unlikely to ever head north to A-70.  70 will likely always be an orphaned Autoroute due to the limited traffic volumes there.  The twinning work on PR-175 is more due to safety because there are low volumes; it won't be to freeway standards, won't follow the whole route, and I do not believe it will carry the A-73 designation.  I find it interesting that A-70 and A-85 (future) are basically the same route and yet one is E-W and one is N-S because of how the Gaspé Peninsula skews directions.
