7. A sum­mer of traf­fic dis­rup­tions

The Compass - - FRONT PAGE -

Mo­torists in the Bay Roberts area will likely re­mem­ber the sum­mer and fall of 2011 for the chal­lenges of nav­i­gat­ing along the busy Con­cep­tion Bay High­way, which is the main thor­ough­fare through the town’s com­mer­cial district.

For the sec­ond year in a row, con­struc­tion com­pa­nies were busy in­stalling new and up­graded sewer in­fra­struc­ture along the street, which sees thou­sands of ve­hi­cles each day.

The de­lays and de­tours re­sulted in some frayed nerves for mo­torists, and some busi­ness own­ers along the street also com­plained about lost rev­enue.

Town of­fi­cials have es­ti­mated the to­tal cost of the project at roughly $10 mil­lion.

The Con­cep­tion Bay High­way through Bay Roberts was a maze of con­struc­tion and de­tours this past sum­mer.
