Spring Flooding Update #17

We have one road reopened today: Little Smoky Area, RR 232 north of TWP Rd 674. Updates will continue to be provided periodically through our website and social media networks as new roads reopen.

Many surface hazards have been addressed and are being repaired. It is anticipated that most road repairs will be completed in one to two weeks. A few areas have sustained serious damages and will remain marked as hazards with signage so that drivers are aware. Long term repairs for these areas will be scheduled throughout the 2018 construction season.

New sinkholes have started to appear now that the flood waters have subsided and the ground settles. A crew is working on washout damage on RR 10 between Twp rd 732 and Twp rd 725 which should be open by the end of day. To report areas of concern, call Operations at 780-524-7602 or contact the area supervisor for your region: Ron Pollack at 780-524-7607 for Valleyview, Sunset House, Sweathouse, New Fish Creek, Ridgevalley, and Little Smoky; or Robert Kazakawich at 780-524-6086 for DeBolt, Puskwaskau, Grovedale and Grande Cache.
