Two Sections of “North South” Highway to Open in September

YEREVAN (Noyan Tapan)–The construction of two sections of the "North-South" highway ("Dashbulag-Kichan" and "Karmir Shuka-Drakhtic") in the Republic of Karabakh will be completed in September. The work on the northern section has already been completed–and final construction and pavement of the southern section began in late July.

The construction of the road was funded by the money raised from the TV marathons held in Los Angeles in 1999 and 2000. Another TV marathon is to be held this November–and most of the proceeds will be used for the construction of the remaining sections of the highway.
