The Town’s 2019 Municipal Budget allocated funds to cover the Town’s 1/3 portion of the estimated $4.0 million projects, which would see the complete rebuild and re-paving and extension of Kelland Drive from Hamilton River Road Intersection to Corte Real Road (except for the 1 km section completed in 2017).

$2 million was spent upgrading and paving the Kelland Drive section from Hamilton River Road to Tooktoshina Drive. A further $2 million allowed the extension of Kelland Drive from Hefler West Intersection to Corte Real Road. $2 million was allocated to re-pave various streets in Town and includes the rebuilding and paving of a section of the unpaved section of Corte Real Road. This will connect Corte Real Road with Kelland Drive.

To summarize, 2021 saw more than $6 million spent on Town roads.

The Kelland Drive Reconstruction & Extension and Local Roads Project brings Kelland Drive up to a Provincial Standard and will be a much-needed Arterial Road for all residents of Happy Valley-Goose Bay while providing an alternate evacuation route.
