River Road between 92A Avenue and Regal Drive will be closed on Thursday, November 29 from 10:00am to 12:00pm while the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure performs mandatory utility inspections in the westbound travel lane. The eastbound travel lane has been closed since June 13, 2018 due a flash flood causing significant damage to the roads retaining wall. As access to the utilities is located in the westbound travel lane, a full road closure is unavoidable. Completion of the utilities inspection is a necessary step in the roads repair process.
Access for local traffic and emergency vehicles will remain in place throughout the closure and single lane alternating traffic will continue outside of the road closure hours. Questions regarding the closure should be directed to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s Regional Project Manager at 604-527-2285.
Please follow the designated detour route while the closure is in place.
