Gillespie Road at Roche Cove will be closed overnight Sundays through Thursdays starting July 22 while the single-lane Roche Cove bridge is replaced.

Construction on the new bridge started last June, and is part of ongoing improvements to Highway 14.

Crews will be installing bridge piers for the new two-lane bridge that will open this fall.

The closures will take place from 9 p.m. through 5 a.m., and will last for about two weeks. A detour via Kangaroo Road will be in effect.

More on the Highway 14 corridor improvements can be found at the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s website.
