Noels Pond Bypass Road Route 460 Revised

Proponent:  Department of Transportation and Works

Summary of Environmental Assessment Process

Project Description:

The proponent proposes a revised route for construction of a bypass road at Route 460 (Hansen Memorial Highway) near Noels Pond, in the Stephenville area. The revised route would be shorter than the route proposed in May 2014 and will connect to Route 460 before Long Gull Pond to reduce the amount of rock blasting required. The revised bypass road would be approximately 3.6 kilometres long and upgrading of 2.1 kilometres for a total of 5.7 kilometres length of work.  The purpose of this construction is to bypass a section of Route 460 near Noels Pond that is subject to frequent flooding resulting in temporary highway closures.  Construction is planned to be carried out over a two-year period starting in summer 2015.
