“Concerns about the stability of the escarpment in this area were raised through a routine maintenance review and have been identified as needing immediate attention in the interest of public safety,” said a City spokesperson.

This closure will be occurring at the same time as the closure on Hwy 8 so motorists should plan accordingly. The City says no formal detour is being planned.
