History of the Trans-Canada across Newfoundland, from Argentia & Placentia to Whitbourne
Argentia Access Road, also known as Route 100, is a main connector route used by tourists, commuters and commercial traffic travelling between the Trans-Canada Highway and the Marine Atlantic ferry terminal in Argentia. It is also an integral component of the transportation network surrounding the Vale Inco site.
With no upgrades in almost 20 years, the road had deteriorated to the point of being unsafe. The asphalt was coming up in some areas and deep potholes made driving treacherous.
