Updated Provided on Bridge Repairs on Avalon Peninsula #nltraffic


Work will begin today to repair a bridge in the eastbound lanes of the Outer Ring Road over Team Gushue Highway.


Construction sites at four bridges on the Avalon Peninsula are reopening to two lanes.


Speed limits at each location will remain at 50 km/h until work is completed in October:

  • The bridge on the eastbound Trans-Canada Highway approximately four kilometres east of the Foxtrap Access Road has reopened to two lanes.

  • The bridge on the eastbound Pitts Memorial Drive between the highway’s interchange with the Robert E. Howlett Highway and the overpass above Bay Bulls Road has reopened to two lanes.

  • The bridge on the westbound Pitts Memorial Drive between the highway’s interchange with the Robert E. Howlett Highway and the overpass above Bay Bulls Road is expected to reopen to two lanes in early October.

  • The bridge on the eastbound Pitts Memorial Drive over Robert E Howlett Highway is also expected to reopen to two lanes in early October.

Work at each site included repairs to concrete and expansion joints.


Due to a shortage of the type of liquid asphalt needed to pave the bridges, paving will be completed in mid-October.
