Lane Closure and Temporary Detour on TCH near Salmonier Line #nltraffic
As of Tuesday, May 19 both the eastbound and westbound lanes of the Trans-Canada Highway from Salmonier Line to Holyrood Access Road will be closed to replace two culverts located approximately one kilometre east of Salmonier Line.
While work is ongoing, eastbound traffic must exit at Route 90 (Salmonier Line) and follow Route 60 (Conception Bay Highway) to Route 62 (Holyrood Access Road). Westbound traffic must exit at Route 62 and follow Route 60 to Route 90.
A contract valued at $607,000 has been awarded to Weirs Construction to replace the culverts. The Department of Transportation and Works anticipates the highway reopening by June 2.
Two other culverts were replaced in the area in 2017.
