PINSENT’S ARM, Nfld. – A significant amount of road work will be carried out in Labrador this year in addition to $17 million worth of construction on the Trans Labrador Highway (TLH) to complete Phase II.
Government will also commit $3 million to begin constructing a road connecting Pinsent’s Arm to the TLH.
When the project is completed, residents of Pinsent’s Arm will be able to access other communities in the area and, for the first time, will be able to welcome visitors and goods into their community via a highway. Construction of this road will begin this summer and is expected to take two years.
A number of other road projects are occurring in Labrador this year. The government will spend $300,000 to finish upgrading roads in Rigolet and $500,000 for the continued resurfacing of North West River Road.
Another $1.8 million will be spent to improve roads in the southern Labrador communities of Port Hope Simpson and Cartwright, and to finish upgrading roads in Charlottetown and Mary’s Harbour.
The Department of Works, Services and Transportation will soon start the design work for the construction of a two-lane steel bridge for the community of Mary’s Harbour.
