Commonwealth Avenue, Topsail Road & Blackmarsh Road Construction Projects

The City of Mount Pearl is now undertaking major infrastructure improvements.

Topsail Road / Blackmarsh Road

The first project, slated for October 2017 – July 2018, will involve widening and repaving portions of both Topsail and Blackmarsh roads, and reconfiguring the Blackmarsh-Topsail Intersection to allow for traffic signals. The wastewater management system will also be upgraded, and new curbs, gutters, sidewalks and bus lay-by areas will be installed.


Commonwealth Avenue

The second project, slated for October 2017 – October 2018, will involve repaving Commonwealth Avenue from Glendale Avenue to Francis Street, upgrading or installing 2,000 metres of sidewalks, and upgrading the traffic signals at four key locations. The water and wastewater management systems will also be updated along this important roadway.

Construction will begin on Commonwealth Avenue on Monday, October 16, 2017. The starting section is between Whitely Drive and Francis Street.


Both of these major infrastructure projects will improve traffic flow in the City, reduce delays and improve accessibility and safety for our pedestrians. They will also improve capacity for future development in these areas.

However, as these are major construction projects, please expect disruptions and delays. The City of Mount Pearl appreciates your cooperation during this time.
