St. John’s, N.L. — Concerned about a deteriorated section of road along a provincial highway or bridge?

Residents will get to have their say about what roadwork they’d like to see completed.

The provincial government is inviting the general public to provide input that will be included in the update to the Department of Transportation and Works’ five-year provincial roads plan in early 2019.

First announced in 2017 and updated earlier this year, the plan uses input from the general public in its evidence-based approach to build, renew and maintain highway infrastructure.

Road work planned for each year is ranked on factors such as safety, traffic volumes, socio-economic impacts and input from the department’s engineers and public.

Participants will be asked to identify their region, route name and number and the nearest municipality or landmark, followed by the type of issue they are experiencing.

The form can be accessed via Engagenl.ca and www.roads.gov.nl.ca and will be open for input until Nov. 16.
