River Road Lane Closure

Feb 25, 2019

The eastbound lane on River Road between 92A Avenue and Knudson Road is closed due to a wash out that was caused by a flash flood on June 13, 2018. As a result, the south retaining wall requires mandatory repairs before traffic can safely use the lane.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has provided an update on the steps being taken to stabilize the road and proceed with design and repair:

  • The Ministry is currently implementing interim repair and is working with Mainroad, their maintenance contractor, to complete this work based on weather condition. Construction will soon commence on the interim repair. Over the coming weeks, motorists can expect to see construction crews, mobilization of equipment and materials, and construction activities.
  • The complete repair works is ongoing concurrently with interim repair; the Ministry is working with Associated Engineering to design this work. Complete repair for the wall is planned to be completed before the end of summer 2019.
  • Single lane alternating traffic still applies 24 hours a day and 7 days a week for safety until the work is completed by the end of summer 2019. Please use road with caution.
