New closure coming for Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill
Drivers are reminded starting Tuesday, Jan. 5, 2021, the weekday four-hour road closure window on Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill will move to 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
This new timing reflects community and stakeholder feedback, which stated this closure window is more convenient for people who travel this route regularly.
On-site geotechnical investigations have determined the safest times to blast are during daylight hours, which allow for safe, efficient removal of loose rock after each blast. Daytime blasting and scheduled road closures are expected to be required through spring 2021.
The ministry thanks drivers and residents for their ongoing patience. Once complete, the Highway 4 Kennedy Hill Safety Improvement Project will create a safer, more reliable connection between Port Alberni and the west coast of Vancouver Island.
