Saint Andrews, New Brunswick gets funding for wharf upgrades
The New Brunswick department of economic development recently announced that the federal and provincial governments are investing a combined total of $600,000 to improve the Saint Andrews Wharf.
"The infrastructure improvements include the installation of floating platforms, an aluminum gangway, and the construction of a public washroom building on the wharf," according to a provincial government press release.
The purpose is to allow the wharf to accommodate larger vessels and visiting cruise ships.
The Town of Saint Andrews is on the Bay of Fundy about 100 kilometres west of Saint John, near the U.S. border.
Federal funding will be through the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency (ACOA) under the Innovative Communities Fund.
Just east of the town is Ministers Island, where in May the province announced $98,000 towards restoration work on the Van Horne Estate, which was the summer home of William Van Horne, an executive in charge of construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway during the 1880s.
