Here is the itinerary for the 45 km along the #1 between Clarenville and Whitbourne, Newfoundland (access to the Agentia ferry to North Sydney, Nova Scotia):

South of Clarenville, the Highway moves along a narrow isthmus onto the Avalon Peninsula. This area is a fog zone, with shallow acidic soils & bogs in low-lying areas. To the east is the broad Trinity Bay, to the west is Placentia Bay, at the extreme southwest tip (at the end of the Burin Peninsula) are the French islands of St Pierre & Miquelon.

Lighthouse along the Eastern Shore At Come-By-Chance is Newfoundland's only oil refinery, built in 1973 with much government funding, but is now privately owned and exports $2 billion a year of production.

Chapel Arm, just east of the highway was once Newfoundland's whaling capital. Fishermen drove pothead whales into the shallows where they were slaughtered. The peak was in 1956 with 10,000 whales, but numbers fell off over the years, until the current international moratorium on slaughtering these endangered sea mammals.

Just before Whitbourne is Highway 100, which takes travelers south to the summer Ferry to North Sydney.
