ROCKFALL UPDATE Workers continue to scale the rock face on Flood Hope Road and are making considerable progress. A component of the work will involve blasting which is scheduled to take place Tuesday April 4th, in the afternoon. Motorists and pedestrians should expect delays and are advised to take an alternate route.
A rockslide has occurred this morning on Flood Hope Road (Richmond Hill). District crews have temporarily diverted traffic around the slide until such time that the slope has been assessed and stabilized.
Residents, please be advised that on Wednesday March 29th, 2017, Wallace St. between 3rd and 4th Avenue, will be reduced to one lane in order to facilitate the removal of a portion of a tree. The District, on an annual basis, retains the services of an Arborist to assess risk associated with trees on public land and in this instance, the partial removal is a result of thorough inspection and recommendation for mitigation. We do not expect the closure to be long-lasting. We thank residents in advance for their patience and understanding.
