*** One report – RCMP assisting homeowners – caught by surprise with blocked roads and not being able to go home. Officers took convoys of cars from the Oliver Legion through the blockades – so that other traffic prevented from entering a work zone.
Above water pool east of Hwy and culverts ready to be installed
Pictures below indicate no breach of the road at Sportsman’s Bowl Rd.
Pictures indicate equipment preparing to install new culvert(s) across highway.
All pictures taken Tuesday at 7:30 am
Culvert projects completed at Rd 8-9 and Rd 5. Work can be completed in 1 or 2 days. (Leave existing culvert to drain. Cut pavement north of existing and install two large culverts. Cover.)
The problem that I see is what happens to the water flowing into the new culverts. Can it be directed back to the original creek bed?
