Lake Wohlford Road will remain closed to all traffic between Lake Wohlford Court and Oakvale Road likely through April 11, 2011 while corrective measures are made to the hillside.

Tests conducted by West Coast Geotechnical Consultants have confirmed that the slope is unstable and measures will need to be taken before the road can be reopened.  The City will be hiring a contractor within the next two days to do the work. Funding for the repairs will come from the City’s Street Maintenance Fund.

Lake Wohlford and the surrounding community can be accessed following the detour route which is north on S6 Valley Center Road to Woods Valley Road which returns you to North Lake Wohlford Road.

Note to Editors:  A news release will be distributed once the road is opened to traffic again.
