Frustration was high during the evening commute last night for drivers forced to detour through Holyrood due to the closure of the Trans-Canada.
Traffic was moving at a snail’s pace in both directions along the Salmonier Line and Holyrood Access.
One commuter told VOCM News that it took him nearly two hours to drive the detour late yesterday afternoon.
Commuters are being advised to add an hour or two to their travel time.

Forecast Could Force Repair Delays
A weather system forecast for the Avalon region today could force some delays in the completion of repairs to a sinkhole on the Trans Canada Highway.
The sinkhole, which developed after heavy rains Christmas week, forced the closure of the Trans Canada between Salmonier Line and the Holyrood Access Road.
Officials had hoped to have the repairs completed by Thursday, weather permitting, but today’s forecast rain and wind may create some delays.
