Areas to be affected are as follows:

  • Cobb Lane – access off West Valley Road will be closed
  • Cobb Lane will become two-lane traffic and can be accessed from Elswick Road
  • Access to the Glynmill Inn Hotel will be through a temporary entrance at the intersection of Park Street and Central Street
  • The Corner Brook Trails stairway leading to Glynmill Inn Pond via Cobb Lane will be closed during this time due to deep excavation adjacent to the worksite

The general motoring public is advised to use alternate routes.

Residents can visit the City’s official website,, at any time to view road closure notices, precautionary boil water advisories and water outages.

The City of Corner Brook would like to thank you for your cooperation and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
