A section of road located at 8645 Westside Road N in the Ewings Landing area has reopened to single lane alternating traffic.

 

A 50 per cent load restriction remains in place for commercial vehicles.

 

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure assessed the safety and slope stability of the area and determined to reopen the road with single lane alternating traffic. The road was closed due to a landslide that occurred Tuesday morning which caused a portion of the road to collapse.

An evaluation and assessment of the slope stability above the two properties continues and when it is safe, the order will be rescinded.
