Robert: Team Gushue Highway re-opening delayed
The re-opening of the Team Gushue Highway was scheduled to happen today, but Mother Nature had other plans.
According to Transportation & Works NL, weather conditions over the weekend prevented crews from finishing the line painting on the road.
Motorists are advised that progress has been made on the remaining work left to complete the Team Gushue Highway. Due to wet weather Sunday, final line painting could not be completed. An update will be provided Monday on when the highway can safely open to motorists. #nltraffic

The new extension to the stretch of highway would not only allow driver’s to once again exit onto Kenmount Rd, but new exits will now allow driver’s to take the TGH to Blackmarsh Road and ultimately Topsail Road from the Outer Ring Road.
An update will be provided today to motorists with information on when the extension will be finished.
