Due to road and railway improvements on the Trans-Canada Highway (TCH) June 24 to June 28, the TCH will be closed June 24 at 6:30 a.m. to June 28 at 9:00 p.m.

Westbound and eastbound lanes will be closed to traffic. A detour will be put in place to allow construction to be completed more quickly. Westbound traffic will be detoured off the Trans-Canada Highway onto Provincial Trunk Highway (PTH) 100 to PTH 3 then onto PTH 2. Motorists will then travel on PR 248 north back to the Trans-Canada Highway. Eastbound traffic will be detoured off the Trans-Canada Highway onto PTH 13 to PTH 2, then onto PTH 3 before merging back onto the Trans-Canada Highway.

Most commercial vehicles are permitted on the detour, however, long combination vehicles will be limited to travelling in the daylight hours. MTI staff will be set up on PTH 2 to ensure the safe movement of these vehicles.

Up-to-date information on highway conditions, including detours, restrictions and road closures, is available at or by calling 511.  Click here to view detour map provided by MTI.
