SAINT-JEAN-SUR-RICHELIEU, Quebec (AP) - Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard (COO-yard) and Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin have inaugurated a new stretch of highway that is part of a road system that will eventually link Montreal and Boston.

Couillard and Shumlin met Friday in the Quebec town of Saint-Jean-Sur-Richilieu to cut the ribbon for a 26-mile stretch of Highway 35 that links Saint Jean with Saint-Sebastien, a community about 15 miles north of the U.S. Canadian border at the top of Interstate 89.

Travelers between Highgate Springs and Saint Sebastian will now use Highway 133.

Couillard says the highway is crucial to completing the 310-mile link between Montreal and Boston and linking Highway 35 to Interstate 89, making it “a true trade corridor between Quebec and New England.”
