Detour routes for Topsail Road for paving operations
The Town of Paradise is advising residents that effective Monday, July 16, the following detour routes are in place on Topsail Road, in the area from St. Thomas Line to Carlingford Street (see map for detour routes):
  • In the morning, eastbound traffic will flow through Topsail Road until 9 a.m., at which time eastbound traffic will be detoured through Spracklin Blvd.
  • Westbound traffic on Topsail Road will be detoured through Carlingford Street throughout the day. In the afternoon, starting at 4 p.m., the additional detour will close, and westbound traffic may proceed through Topsail Road.
The detour routes are needed to accommodate the final paving operations of the Phase IV Topsail Road Widening project. It is expected to be in place for approximately one week.
The Town has several traffic calming measures in place along the detour routes, including: 
  • placing large traffic pylons along 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.
During construction, the public is reminded to proceed with caution and to reduce speeds in construction zones and detour routes. The Town of Paradise apologizes for the inconvenience this road work may cause. For more information about road work please visit:
