Opening of Shoal Harbour Causeway Bridge
CLARENVILLE, NL (November 24, 2023) – The Town of Clarenville would like to advise residents and visitors that construction of the Shoal Harbour Causeway Bridge replacement is nearing completion. Paving was completed on November 23rd. Over the next two weeks all remaining work will be completed such as line painting, road shouldering, completion of guardrail system, commissioning of heat tracing system for the watermain and so on. In order to provide a safe work environment and to expedite the remaining work, the causeway will remain closed for the next two weeks.
We are pleased to announce that the causeway will open to motorist and pedestrians on December 8, 2023. The Contractor & Council have agreed to open the bridge temporarily on December 2nd to allow the Santa Claus parade to proceed along the causeway. Minor landscaping & regrading work will be completed along the pedestrian walkway and at the bottom of the pedestrian stairs next spring/summer.
“It is with great anticipation that we announce the completion of the causeway bridge replacement. We would like to thank all contractors, engineering consultants and our Public Works Department for completing the construction on schedule. We thank residents for your patience. Completing this project in 2023 has been a priority for Council & I.
I look forward to seeing traffic flowing across the causeway once again. An official opening ceremony will take place at a later date.”
