Highway Repairs Impacted by COVID-19 Pandemic #nltraffic

The provincial government is advising the public that due to the COVID-19 pandemic, highway repairs may take more time to complete as maintenance operations have been modified by the Department of Transportation and Works to help prevent the spread of the virus.

Steps taken by the department to ensure the safety of crews include: Restricting one employee to a maintenance vehicle when travelling; Using multiple vehicles to travel to a work site; Maintaining at least two metres away from each other while on the work site; and Requiring more time to clean vehicles or heavy equipment after use.

Highway crews will continue to complete highway maintenance, such as pothole and shoulder repairs, on a priority basis.
