The Department of Transportation and Works
advises the public that the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) is closed between
Gambo and Gander due to a washout at Joey’s Lookout near Gambo. Traffic
is being re-routed around this section of Highway via Routes 320 and 330
(The Gander Bay Loop). Residents of Benton and other local traffic will
be allowed access to their homes and businesses via the Gander end of
the TCH closure.
The TCH is now open between the Route 230
interchange and Port Blandford.
The TCH remains closed through Terra Nova
National Park while repairs are ongoing. Parks Canada has advised that
they expect to have restored the flow of traffic through the park by
approximately 4 p.m. today (Thursday, September 23).
