Worsley Drive Construction

Worsley Drive Construction

Conception Bay South Town Council has committed $3 million to the 2023 Street Upgrading, Paving, and Sidewalks Program.  This project is cost-shared with the Government of Newfoundland and Labrador. As part of this project, Worlsey Drive will receive significant upgrades including road widening, curb, gutter and a sidewalk. 

Project Timeline

Construction is scheduled to begin on Monday, July 31, 2023 and should be completed in September. The project timeline is subject to change due to operational reasons and weather conditions. 

Work Schedule

The contractor is permitted to work Monday – Saturday from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Daily schedules may change due to weather, emergency repairs, and statutory holidays.

What to Expect

The upgrades consist of road widening to 8.0 meters, with curb and gutter on both sides, a sidewalk on one side, and the installation of a fully piped storm water system to eliminate road side ditches from Chamberlains Road to Worsley Park. Digital radar feedback speed signs will be placed strategically along the upgraded section as a traffic calming measure. 

Utility Disruptions
There may be instances of water disruptions during construction. Affected residents will be provided 48 hours’ notice, unless here is an unscheduled, emergency disruption. Please subscribe to the Town’s Resident Alert Service so that you can be notified.

A portion of your driveway may be removed; this portion is typically located within the public right of way. The contractor will replace the portion removed. Temporary access will be supplied during construction. There may also be periods when you do not have access to your driveway to allow for curing of concrete. This will be kept to a minimum. Installation of the sidewalk, curb, and gutter may also require removal of some lawn area. The contractor will replace impacted lawn sections.

The Town is not responsible for any damages that may occur due to this road work and safety signage has been posted in the area.  Temporary obstructions will not cause damage to vehicles that are travelling at the posted speed limit.

At times, there may be one-way, alternating traffic controlled by flag persons. In addition, on-street parking of vehicles is not be permitted during the construction project.
