Notice to Residents - Tsawwassen Beach Road Slope Stability Issues

Feb 07, 2020

Due to the recent heavy rainfall, a potential slope stability issue has arisen along the 100-200 block of Tsawwassen Beach Road where a section of the roadway has experienced severe cracking and settlement. Further geotechnical investigation identified a risk of further slippage of the slope in this area and potential risk to two down gradient homes. As a precautionary measure, these two homes are being evacuated to ensure the safety of the residents until remedial repairs can be undertaken.

Although the roadway is currently open, we are also encouraging homeowners to park their vehicles at the top of the hill to minimize the vehicle loading on the slope. Parking is available at the Tsawwassen Tennis Club at 286 English Bluff Road. Additional monitoring will be taking place this weekend and any further action will be undertaken as required.

Updates will be posted on this website. Please continue to refer any emergency calls to 911.
