Trans Canada Highway extension update – June 3 to 10

Construction of the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) extension-Phase 2A continues next week – except for this Sunday, June 4 –  along the North River Causeway and at the intersection of York Point and Warren Grove roads. 

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.). Traffic lights at the North River intersection have been removed, and a temporary roundabout has been constructed to guide traffic during working and non-working hours.

Motorists should consider using alternative routes and times to avoid delays, especially during morning and evening commuting hours.

Work for this week (June 3 to 10) includes:

• placement of the shale and gravel base at the intersection for the roundabout;

• the installation of electrical infrastructure for future highway lighting;

• the installation of a storm sewer collection system;

• concrete curbing and formwork;

• water main installation along the south side of the TCH towards the North River Bridge; and

• deck work on the North River Bridge.

Drivers should watch for directional signs as they will change from time to time.  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.
