Route 130 is a mostly north/south provincial highway in the Canadian province of New Brunswick. The road has a length of approximately 108 kilometers, and services small, otherwise isolated rural communities. In these areas, the highway is often unofficially referred to as "Main Street." The highway is known as Broadway and Portage Road in Grand Falls, and West Riverside Drive in Perth-Andover.

History[edit]

Route 130 at Aroostook

Route 130 was created in 1965 as a short spur from the Trans-Canada Highway into Grand Falls. When a new 4-lane TCH was opened in 2007, the route was extended by over 95 km south from Grand Falls along the former TCH to Aroostook, along a formerly unnumbered route (part of the original Route 2 until the 1960s) from Aroostook to Perth-Andover, the former TCH again from Perth-Andover to Somerville (near Hartland), and a new access road that meets up with the new highway at Waterville.
