Road Work / Construction Season Update
The Town of Paradise has invested in multiple construction projects for year to continue to enhance our transportation infrastructure and road systems and improve access to and from Paradise. Current projects that are in progress or are getting underway include:
  • road work for the Topsail Road / McNamara Drive Roundabout, expected to run throughout the summer;
  • Karwood Roundabout work, expected to be completed in the coming weeks; and
  • Paradise Road Phase III Work (Stormont Street to Archibald Drive), getting underway beginning Monday, May 27.
  • Regular street maintenance and rehabilitation efforts will also take place throughout the summer months.
While the Town works with crews to minimize traffic impacts as much as possible, especially during the peak morning and evening traffic times, traffic interruptions and delays will occur. The public is reminded to use caution and reduce speeds in all construction areas. We thank you for your patience as we work to improve our transportation systems.

Information and updates on all ongoing projects can be found on our website at All major announcements and updates are also shared via social media.
