Motorists are advised that the speed limit on the Trans-Canada Highway - Route 1 over and near the Sir Robert Bond Bridge near the Town of Bishop’s Falls is reduced to 30 km/hr. The speed reduction is necessary for the safety of individuals and equipment currently working on the site of the new bridge and will be enforced until further notice.

Travellers are also reminded that while the new bridge is under construction, the existing structure is being maintained. Upon completion of the new bridge, the existing structure will be completely removed.

The new Sir Robert Bond Bridge will be a three-span, 210 metre, double steel box girder bridge with reinforced concrete deck.
