  4. Markland Road (Colinet, N.L.): Maintenance crews have commenced grading the gravel section of this road recently and will continue to grade as weather allows. As we are still in early Spring, days when conditions permit grading are limited as grading cannot be completed when it is snowing or when there is frost on the surface. While it may be few days before conditions will allow us to continue with the work, please be assured we will complete the grading on Markland Road.We are now into our summer maintenance season and the Whitbourne unit will place hot asphalt on the paved sections of road when the asphalt plants open.
