Trans Canada Highway extension update – June 17 to 24

Construction of the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) extension - Phase 2A continues next week with ongoing paving along the North River Causeway and at the intersection of York Point Road and Warren Grove Road. 

Construction will take place Saturday, June 17 and throughout the week, with the exception of Sunday, June 18. Two lanes of traffic will be maintained during the morning and evening commutes (eastbound from 7:30 to 9 a.m. and westbound from 4 to 5:30 p.m.); motorists should consider using alternative routes and times to avoid delays, especially during morning and evening commuting hours.

Work for this week includes:

• paving the roundabout and adjoining roads;

• the installation of electrical infrastructure for future highway lighting;

• concrete curbing and formwork; and

• deck work on the North River Bridge.

The traffic lights at the North River intersection have been removed, and a temporary roundabout has been constructed to guide traffic through the intersection during working and non-working hours. All traffic must turn right when entering the intersection. 

Drivers should watch for directional signs as they will change from time to time throughout the construction period. Drivers are also asked to be alert and to operate with concern for the safety of workers, pedestrians and their fellow motorists.  

The Department of Transportation, Infrastructure and Energy appreciates the patience of the traveling public during delays caused by construction.
