For the duration of the work, detours will be in place:

The detour will remain in place until 7:30 p. m. daily, including every second Saturday, after this time, Topsail Road will reopen.  While the detour is in place, the section of Topsail Road under construction will be open for local traffic only and residents can expect traffic delays and interruptions in the area. Priority will be given to buses and emergency vehicles travelling through the area to ensure minimal delays. Local businesses are open during the construction. 

  

The Town will implement several traffic calming measures along the detour route, including: 

  • placing large traffic pylons along detour route,
  • installing temporary speed bumps in the detour route,
  • increasing monitoring of construction site and detour route by Town officials and Municipal Enforcement, and
  • liaising with the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary to  increase patrols in the area.

It is also working closely with the contractor to minimize traffic interruptions as much as possible, but residents are advised to anticipate traffic delays in the area. 

During construction, the public is reminded to proceed with caution and to reduce speeds in construction zones and detour routes, especially when in the vicinity of schools. The Phase IV Topsail Road work includes replacing the bridge at Christopher Street. As such, there may be times when the Octagon Pond Trail is closed due to equipment working in the immediate area of the brook.
