    Heavy rain and melting snow caused significant damage across western Newfoundland, including on the Port-au-Port Peninsula.

    Motorists are advised that a section of Route 460 on the Port-au-Port Peninsula continues to be impacted by severe flooding and washouts. At this time, Route 460 is closed in both directions from Marches Point to De Grau. 

    Department of Transportation and Infrastructure officials, engineers and contractors are on site today to assess damage, make appropriate repairs and determine alternate routes where necessary.
