Completion of Route 3

The project consists of completing a north-south arterial highway route in St. John's and Mount Pearl by connecting the end of the Team Gushue Highway to the Pitts Memorial Drive (Route 2) and Robert E. Howlett Memorial Drive (Route 3) interchange. This will involve extending the paved highway from Topsail Road (the current end of the Team Gushue Highway) to the Commonwealth Avenue, Brookfield Road, and Heavy Tree Road area and providing a connection to the Route 2 and 3 interchange using a roundabout corridor. The project also includes installing several related structures and auxiliary access roads, as well as re-aligning a section of Brookfield Road.
