Delivering Safer Streets – O’Connell Drive Right Turn Only

Effective Monday, September 18, 2017, the City of Corner Brook will enact a “Right Turn Only” at:

·         the intersection of Union Street and O’Connell Drive

·         the private roadway turning out of the Salvation Army Citadel parking lot onto O’Connell Drive


A City review of accident statistics for the intersection of O’Connell Drive and Union Street has identified that a number of accidents are occurring involving drivers attempting to complete a left hand turn while exiting Union Street onto O’Connell Drive.

The City of Corner Brook and the Royal Newfoundland Constabulary will monitor these intersections for a 12-month period to determine the effectiveness of this new traffic control in curbing traffic collisions at these intersections
