Workers with the Department of Transportation and Works, along with private haulers were kept busy on Tuesday morning carrying out repairs to a section of road washed away in West Bay.
Culverts had trouble carrying the heavy amount of water in several locations brought on by heavy rains prior to Hurricane Leslie making landfall in Newfoundland on Tuesday morning, with one of them washing away the road completely and making it impassable on Monday night and through Tuesday morning.
A large number of trucks were hired to carry gravel fill to the location, while Transportation and Works equipment worked at filling the section of road.
Other areas where problems were experienced on Monday on the Port au Port Peninsula were all open to traffic on Tuesday and the section in West Bay was expected to be open to traffic in the afternoon.
There was a power outage experienced on the Port au Port Peninsula and a section of Stephenville on Tuesday morning, but was restored a short while later.
Stephenville Mayor Tom O’Brien said the Town of Stephenville hadn’t received any complaints of flooding on Tuesday morning, so Leslie hadn’t resulted in any big problems for the town.
