Route 150 Route 161

Route 160 is a 50 km (31 mi)-long east-west secondary highway in the northeast New Brunswick, Canada. In Saint-Isidore, the route is known as Boulevard des Fondateurs.

Route 160 starts at an intersection with Route 8 and Route 360 near Allardville. From there, it runs east through Saint-Isidore to its terminus at Route 150 in Losier Settlement.

History[edit]

Route 160 was commissioned in 1984 from portions of Route 135 (east of Saint-Isidore) and Route 360 (to the west). Both still exist in shortened form.

In 1989, when a new Route 8 alignment opened that bypassed Allardville to the west, Route 160 was extended 3 km further west along another former portion of Route 360 to meet up with the new highway.
