Public Advisory: Repairs to Washout on Burgeo Highway
Nearing Completion and Road is Open

Due to large amounts of rain in the area yesterday, there are a number of washed out sections on the Burgeo Highway, approximately 24 kilometres from the Trans Canada Highway. The road was closed for a short time last night and temporary repairs were completed to make the road passable.

Department of Transportation and Works staff remained at the scene overnight to advise motorists of the situation. There are still sections on the highway where the lane width is reduced and road shoulders are washed out. Motorists are advised to proceed with caution. Crews are continuing to make repairs and work is expected to be concluded within the next couple of days.
