THREE-WAY STOPS - RAYNHAM AVENUE

Posted: Aug. 28, 2015

Residents and the motoring public are advised that three-way stops have been established at the intersection of Corrigan Street and Raynham Avenue, and at the intersection of Morgan and Raynham. Please note that right-of-way at all-way stops is granted to the first vehicle to come to a full stop; if two vehicles stop at the same time, the vehicle on the right has the right-of-way. When in doubt, it is always safer to yield to the opposing driver. Your patience and cooperation are appreciated.

The Town of Gander reminds residents that Garbage and Refuse Regulations require that household garbage be placed at the concrete curb no earlier than 6 a.m. and no later than 8 a.m. on your scheduled collection day. Household waste must be separated into two streams, with all recyclables placed in transparent blue bags and non-recyclable waste in transparent clear bags.
