Hwy 113Hwy 125
Highway 118, north of Dartmouth at the village of Waverley.

Highway 118, in Nova Scotia, is a short suburban freeway connecting (officially) Victoria Road via Woodland Ave. in Dartmouth with Highway 102 at Fall River, 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) to the north. The highway crosses the Historic Shubenacadie Canal. It also runs along the western shore of Lake Micmac and the western edge of Shubie Park and is known as Lakeview Drive. Running parallel to the highway from the Waverley Road to exit 14 is a portion of the Halifax Lateral of the Maritimes & Northeast Pipeline (natural gas). The highway serves both as a "A-Train and B-Train" route between the Burnside Industrial Park and Highway 102. The highway has the only collector-express section in Atlantic Canada. It is located at the new exit 12 Dartmouth Crossing interchange.

The south end of provincial maintenance is at the Highway 111 interchange.[3]

History[edit]

In the early 1970s, it was decided that a new highway was required to directly link Highway 102 with Dartmouth. In 1972, the then Department of Highways expropriated a portion of land for the construction of Highway 118. The highway was completed in the late 1970s.
