Cape Breton Regional Municipality: Highway 125 Construction Update

For the next several weeks, work on the twinning of Highway 125 in Sydney will require changes in the flow of traffic.

Traffic on Highway 125 will be shifted from the existing two lanes to the newly constructed lanes, and moved back and forth as construction requires.

Two lanes of traffic will remain open at all times but drivers should be prepared for lane changes and drive with extra caution as the project nears completion.

The department appreciates the continuing patience of drivers during this time. Work will continue on Highway 125 until the end of November.
