A $15.3-million highway interchange project near Antigonish, N.S., is one step closer to fruition after residents of the Paqtnkek Mi’kmaw Nation voted in favour of surrendering land for the project on Thursday evening.

Ninety-six per cent of those who cast ballots supported the project. Voter turnout was 67.4 per cent, with 277 of 411 eligible voters participating.

The Paqtnkek First Nation is located between Heatherton and Tracadie, about 25 kilometres east of Antigonish.
