99 Street Closed

UPDATED: 99 Street Closed

Please note due to a slide in the area the gravel section of 99 Street is closed to all traffic. This shall remain in place until Peace River Public Works determines the road is safe.

During the last two weeks two crews measured an increase in a slide near 99 Street, over that period ground fell just over a metre prompting the Town’s engineering department to close the road due to public safety. The next step is to retain a civil engineering firm to complete a geotechnical analysis for the area. This analysis will help us determine the extent of the slide and what actions will need to be taken. Pre-emptively we have cut a sewer line that runs under the road and are rerouting it for the time being. Residents in the area shouldn’t notice a difference.

We anticipate a lengthy closure due as we work on this please make alternate travel plans during this time. We apologize for the inconvenience and will update when the road reopens.
