West Coast Construction has completed the repair of Old River Road that slumped out last Winter. The road is now open – drivers no longer need to detour around Judd Road and Gwee-Shut.
The failed section of Old River Road has been realigned away from the failing slope and the roadway secured with a solder pile wall tied back into existing bed rock. The field work was started in July of this year and was substantially completed on time and slightly under budget.
The only remaining work left is the application of lane striping. Unfavorable weather conditions prevented that final task from taking place. However, the contractor has placed temporary pavement markers to create the lanes needed to open this road to the public. The lane striping will be completed when a good weather break emerges.
