The Team Gushue High­way ex­ten­sion from Ken­mount Road to Top­sail Road opened Fri­day, af­ter re­peated delays.

The ex­ten­sion was sup­posed to open a week ear­lier.

The Depart­ment of Trans­porta­tion and Works re­moved bar­ri­cades at en­trances to the high­way at Ken­mount Road, Cap­tain Whe­lan Drive, the new Brier Av­enue, Black­marsh Road and Top­sail Road.

Mo­torists are en­cour­aged to drive care­fully due to re­cent weather con­di­tions and their un­fa­mil­iar­ity with the new sec­tion of the high­way, Trans­porta­tion and Works said.

Mo­torists trav­el­ling the high­way to Top­sail Road are re­minded that the high­way nar­rows to one lane near the Black­marsh Road over­pass. The sec­ond lane at this sec­tion will open when the high­way ex­tends be­yond Top­sail Road.

East­bound mo­torists on Ken­mount Road trav­el­ling to the Outer Ring Road will ac­cess the Team Gushue High­way via Kelsey Drive, as the ramp pre­vi­ously used to ac­cess Team Gushue High­way east­bound will now flow traf­fic south to­ward Top­sail Road.
