Campbell River road closures in effect starting Wednesday

Final repairs to the road surface above the culvert crossing at Simms Creek on Galerno Road

Drivers need to be aware of two road closures on Campbell River streets this week.

Weather permitting, the City of Campbell River will be working on the final repairs to the road surface above the culvert crossing at Simms Creek on Galerno Road starting today.

This work will require closing of the northbound lane crossing the bridge for three to five days.

Traffic control will be in place, with alternating one lane traffic, and the sidewalk on the east side of the road will be closed during this period.

“We apologize in advance for these interruptions and encourage the use of other route until this work is completed,” said city spokesperson Julie Douglas.

The City of Campbell River will also be conducting a planned repair of a water line in the 700 block of Alder Street tomorrow, weather permitting.

The work will occur between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. and will cause some delays for drivers who use Alder Street between 7th and 9th avenues.

Traffic may be reduced to one lane during this time. Drivers are asked to watch for changes in traffic flow and use other routes if possible to avoid delays.

Pedestrians will be able to continue to walk along this part of Alder Street.
