Drivers are advised that the section of Highway 14 at Parkinson Hill, six kilometres east of Port Renfrew, will be closed on June 3 at 8:30 a.m. until June 4 at 5:30 a.m.
The 21-hour closure is required for crews to remove a temporary bridge structure that was installed in April to allow for deep road-base repairs over the width of the existing highway as part of the Parkinson Hill slope repair project. Due to challenges with limited working space and the complexity of removing the bridge, the work needs to be done with the road closed.
The highway was reduced to single-lane traffic in November 2018 after significant rainfall resulted in a slope failure. A 220-metre retaining wall has been built and road-base repairs are part of the second phase of work.
The Parkinson Hill slope repair project is on schedule to be completed by July 2021. Once completed, two-way traffic on Highway 14 will be restored, making travelling the road to Port Renfrew safer and more efficient.
