Public Advisory: Motorists Reminded of Outer Ring Road Closure

The Outer Ring Road from Kenmount Road interchange to Logy Bay Road interchange will be closed Sunday, June 11, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. for a cleanup of litter and large discarded items.

This year, volunteers are invited to participate in the cleanup with Transportation and Works crews. The closure of the highway is necessary to ensure a controlled, safe environment for all participants.

Motorists are advised to watch for electronic signs being placed along the route to give advanced notice of the closure.

During the cleanup, barricades will be erected, prohibiting access at all entry points, which are:

  • Logy Bay Road
  • Torbay Road
  • Portugal Cove Road
  • Allandale Road
  • Team Gushue Highway
  • Thorburn Road
  • Topsail Road
  • Kenmount Road

Individuals or groups who wish to volunteer for the clean-up must register at external link. Children 15 and under must have adult supervision.

Transportation to the Outer Ring Road will be provided by Metrobus from Confederation Building, West Block. Volunteers are reminded to make safety a priority and wear long-sleeved shirts, pants and closed-toe footwear that are appropriate for weather and working outside.
