Public Advisory: Trans-Canada Highway Work at Avondale Postponed Due to Impending Weather

Motorists on the Avalon Peninsula are advised that work to replace culverts on the Trans-Canada Highway at Avondale originally planned for the coming weekend has been postponed due to the uncertainty around pending weather. This work is now tentatively scheduled to be completed during the weekend beginning on September 13.

As a result, the previously announced detours for September 6-10 will be postponed and lane reductions will resume Monday, September 9.

Updates will be provided as they become available.

Crews with the department are also monitoring Hurricane Dorian, preparing for any adverse weather and checking road infrastructure.

Updates on this project and other projects throughout the province can be found at
