Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill spring closure schedule |BC Gov News
Thursday, May 27, 2021 7:00 AM
Blasting to remove a significant rock bluff on the Kennedy Hill improvement project has been progressing well, and drivers are advised that midday closures will continue daily through June 2021.
During the past five weeks, a section of Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill has been closed for 10 hours every Wednesday for the blasting and removal of an extremely challenging portion of the final significant rock bluff. The blasting was successful, and no further 10-hour closures are expected to be needed to complete the project.
Blasting on site will continue into the summer, with the most challenging blasting completed.
The four-hour daytime closures on weekdays, between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., will continue through June. More details regarding closure schedules for the summer will be made available when they are confirmed.

When completed, 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.
The ministry thanks drivers and residents on both sides of the closure for their patience.
