New closure window planned for Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill

New closure window planned for Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill

December 14, 2020 at 6:51 am  BC, News, Politics

Drivers are advised that the daytime four-hour road closure window on Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill will shift to 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays starting Jan. 5, 2021.

The new closure window follows input recently received from local residents, commercial operators and local stakeholders. From now until Jan. 5, the closure window for blasting, when utilized, will remain from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On-site geotechnical investigations determined that the safest time to blast is during daylight hours, to allow for safe and efficient removal of loose rock after each blast. Daytime blasting and scheduled road closures are expected to be required through spring 2021.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure thanks drivers and residents for their patience. Once complete, the Highway 4 Kennedy Hill Safety Improvement Project will create a safer and more reliable connection between Port Alberni and the west coast of Vancouver Island.
