CORNER BROOK – The portion of West Street between Central Street and East Valley Road will be closed for two or three weeks, beginning this weekend.
The closure is needed to allow a contractor to replace the storm sewer under West Street as part of the ongoing infrastructure project in that area of downtown Corner Brook.
Nearby Church Street will be converted to two-way traffic to allow access to the remainder of West Street via a detour along Central Street and East Valley Road.
The speed limit throughout the detour zone will be reduced to 30 kilometres per hour for the duration of the project. Motorists, cyclists and pedestrians are advised to use extra caution in the area.
