Traffic Delays and Detours in Goulds and Kilbride as City Completes Sanitary Sewer Upgrade
The City of St. John’s wishes to advise residents and travelers to expect traffic delays and detours from September 20 to November 30 along Main Road in Goulds, and Bay Bulls Road in Kilbride.
Construction is required to complete the installation of infrastructure as the City continues to upgrade the area’s sewer services.
In February of 2020, the new Gould's Sewage Pumping Station was commissioned; however, to meet Federal Guidelines, a new sewage force main and gravity trunk sewer is planned to be installed along Main Road / Bay Bulls Road to redirect raw sewage from the pumping station to the Riverhead Wastewater Treatment Facility for proper treatment before ocean discharge.
The force main installation will occur along Main Road from the sewage pumping station (located near Heffernan's Place) to approximately 500m south of Ruby Line, where it will connect to the gravity trunk sewer. The gravity trunk sanitary sewer installation will occur along Main Road / Bay Bulls Road from approximately 500m south of Ruby Line to Walsh's Lane.
Traffic interruptions and delays will be experienced during this project. Delays will be kept to a minimum and two-way traffic will be maintained where possible.
The City apologizes for any inconvenience caused.
