Today the Department of Transportation and Works announced a 2018-19 edition of the Five-Year Provincial Roads Plan. The plan document includes a list of road work to be done in the next five years in this province.
The Government says in the last road construction season more than 600 lane kilometres of highway were paved and more than 300 culverts were replaced.
The roads plan document states:
“Road projects scheduled for this year are the ones that rank the highest based on safety, traffic volumes, social and economic impacts, input from engineers and input from the public.”
In Green Bay, Little Bay Road (route 392) will see sections of guiderail replaced.
West Bottom Brook bridge near South Brook will be replaced, a project that will take multiple construction seasons to complete. That project was previously announced.
On the Baie Verte Peninsula, a culvert will be replaced at Cross Country on Burlington Road (route 413). La Scie Road (route 414) will be upgraded and paved. And a multi-plate culvert will be replaced at Buxom Brook on Nipper’s Harbour Road (route 415).
