Parks Canada’s Infrastructure Program
What to know before you visit
Over the next five years, Parks Canada will invest $3 billion to rehabilitate infrastructure assets within national historic sites, national parks, and national marine conservation areas across Canada. This historic investment supports conservation while promoting visitor experience and making our infrastructure safer and more appealing to visitors. When visiting or driving through Gros Morne National Park, you may encounter one or more construction zones or reduced services while we complete this important work.
Please plan ahead before you travel to avoid inconvenience. Consult the following list of current infrastructure projects in Gros Morne National Park to see if any road work might impact your trip.
A significant amount of Parks Canada’s existing highway infrastructure assets require action now. The paving projects, rock and slope stabilisation, and rehabilitation of bridges planned as part of this historic investment will ensure safe and reliable roads and an improved visitor experience while protecting the ecological and cultural integrity of our national treasures. Here’s an update on current conditions:
We thanks residents and visitors for their patience last summer as we completed major roads projects worth some $23 million. It included laying new pavement repairing bridges, and installing new guard rails and erosion walls. Your continued patience as we make more improvements is most appreciated as we're had at it again this summer!
