Motorists using the Outer Ring Road are advised of lane closures next to the median on the highway between Torbay Road and Logy Bay Road, beginning today.
The speed limit will be reduced to 50 km/h in this area.
This work is expected to continue for several weeks and the street lights on this portion of the highway will not be operational during this period.
The lane closures are necessary as a contractor repairs light poles. As crews and equipment will be working in the roadway, the lane reduction ensures the safety of workers and motorists and allows the work to be completed as quickly as possible.
