A new four-lane divided stretch of Autoroute 73 was opened on Wednesday November 11th 2015. Cars can now move quickly between Saint-Georges and the village of Notre-Dame-des-Pins. Autoroute 73 southern entrance is at the Route 204 traffic circle in St.Georges (exit 43). It reaches 74th street in St-Georges(exit 48) and is now extended northward to Notre-Dame-des-Pins (exit 53).
The next and final stretch of road is set to open early Fall 2016 in Beauceville (exit 61). This will mark the end of a 43-year wait by the southern Beauce population. This last part of the project has been divided in three work zones (two of which are nearly completed).
