^ The roundabout mentioned is at the TCH & PEI 248.  Google Maps imagery shows both it and the initial leg of bypass construction pointing westward from the roundabout.

I found and looked at the EIS and it's...interesting.  They're effectively building the bypass as a freeway segment.  There will be two interchanges...a diamond at Cornwall Rd and a trumpet at the southwest end near Clyde River.  The other three intersecting roads will be bridged.  This, in effect, will be PEI's first freeway segment and only their 2nd and 3rd interchanges...the existing TCH-1/PEI 1A junction is a trumpet, the only other interchange on the island.

The EIS says the roadway will be between 2 and 4 lanes.  None of the maps specify where the transition will be so it's hard to say whether and where it will be a full 4-lane freeway segment or a Super-2.  The EIS, unforunately, also makes zero mention of any route number changes as a result of the bypass.
