Mount Bernard Reconstruction Begins Next Week

City of Corner Brook

Next week, the City of Corner Brook will begin the long-awaited reconstruction of Mt Bernard Ave. This project is necessary in order to upgrade the water/ wastewater infrastructure so that we can supply the region’s new hospital, with work taking place fall of 2022, continuing though spring of 2023. This major reconstruction will mean disruptions to residents and visitors to the area. As such, the City has established a dedicated webpage for updates. Those who wish to do so can also sign up for email updates. Both links are below.

The City will communicate directly with businesses, the school board and residents. Other interested parties, particularly commuters who regularly use the road, should use our social media channels, traditional media channels and our website for all the latest news.

Construction will take place in two zones this fall, each starting one after the other:

  • Work Zone 1, Main St – Valley Mall Entrance. During this phase, road access will be maintained for businesses. This phase is expected to last until the beginning of October.
  • Work Zone 2, Valley Mall Entrance – Wellington St. During this phase, this section of road will be closed to traffic. Wellington St. Will remain open at Mt. Bernard. School, church and sports facilities will maintain access via Wellington St.

We understand this project will be an interruption to many users and ask for everyone’s patience throughout construction. Any questions can be forwarded to the City via our customer service line, 637-1666.

The total cost of this project is $10,376,520 with the Government of Canada and Province of Newfoundland and Labrador each contributing $4,150,608 under the Investing in Canada Infrastructure Program. The City of Corner Brook is contributing $2,075,304.
