Unique night paving project turns heads on T.C.H. Monday night


It was an eerie scene on the Trans-Canada highway Monday night as paving equipment moved slowly under elevated lights to start the province’s first night-time paving project.

Workers and equipment from Concord Paving had the eastbound lane all to themselves after traffic was diverted down the Salmonier Line in an effort to keep the work as safe as possible. Many motorists approaching the work area slowed to view the unique (in Newfoundland and Labrador at least) project which will help government determine whether night-time paving is a viable option to doing roadwork during the day in heavier traffic. About thirty kilometers of the Trans-Canada will be repaved in seven sections between Kenmount Road and Salmonier Line with work being carried out between 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Sunday evening to Friday morning.
