Ten-hour closure planned for Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill

Ten-hour closure planned for Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill

March 12, 2021 at 4:07 pm  BC, News, Politics

Drivers are advised a section of Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill will be closed from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (Pacific time) on Tuesday, March 23, 2021, for the blasting and removal of a significant rock bluff.

This 10-hour closure is required for crews to undertake one of the most complex blasts on the project. The daylight closure will allow workers time to prepare the road beneath the blast area, and to safely remove loose rock immediately following the blast.

The regular project closure schedule, which includes four-hour road closures weekdays between 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., will resume on Wednesday, March 24.

When completed, 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.

The ministry thanks motorists and residents on both sides of the closure for their patience.
