In July and early August, we shared news of what’s happening with the 101st Street slope. This information came after heavy rainfall caused the Town to barricade a portion of 101st Street to single lane traffic as engineering and geotechnical firms assessed the situation.

On September 1, 2023, we closed a public tender for work which would address the damage that was visible at the time so the road could be reopened. There were no bids submitted to the Town of Peace River for the scope of work that was posted.

The Town is actively working with our consultants to come up with a plan to get the road opened back up and damaged infrastructure repaired as soon as possible, including reaching out to interested contractors who declined to submit pricing for the work to address outstanding concerns.

This means we might be doing something now in the short term and coming back to the area in the future if additional measures are recommended by our geotechnical and engineering consultants. Future updates regarding this area will be provided on the 101st Street project page on our website.

Safety is our Number 1 concern, and we understand that lane closure is inconvenient for residents.
