Scotia) Eastern Shore . Prince Edward Island is largely dominated by farming, fishing, and tourism. In 1875 the region's largest construction project in history was completed when the federal government's Intercolonial Railway (ICR) opened between Moncton and Campbellton (Campbellton, New Brunswick). The following year it would link Halifax (Halifax Regional Municipality) with Rivière-du-Loup and the Canadian railway network.

Surveyors deemed the ideal location for bridging to be at the upper reaches of tidewater between Nelson (Nelson, New Brunswick) and Newcastle (Newcastle, New Brunswick), crossing the Southwest Miramichi (Southwest Miramichi River), then a short section of land at Derby, followed by the Northwest Miramichi (Northwest Miramichi River). The combined length of these bridges would be among the largest constructed to date in Canada (surpassed only by the Victoria Bridge (Victoria Bridge, Montreal) in Montreal) and were the first bridges over the Miramichi River, revolutionizing transport in the region. thumb 300px Centennial Bridge (File:June 2009 Miramichi Centennial Bridge.jpg) Miramichi has good highway connections to other major centres in New Brunswick offered via Highways 8 (New Brunswick Route 8) (west to Fredericton; north to Bathurst (Bathurst, New Brunswick) and Campbellton (Campbellton, New Brunswick)) and 11 (New Brunswick Route 11) (south to Moncton, Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia).
