There’s some good news and bad news for people who use Highway 4 — the highway is on track to reopen to two-way traffic next week, but it will need to fully close for Tuesday for some final rock scaling.
In the previous two full-day closures, crews removed around one dozen refrigerator-sized boulders from Angel Rock and placed 700 metres of roadside barrier.
More scaling is needed on Angel Rock, so the road will be fully closed on Tuesday to allow crews to finish.
The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure says the highway should reopen to two-way traffic by Labour Day.
Other than the closure on Tuesday, the road will continue to open to single-lane alternating traffic except from from 9 a.m. until 11:30 a.m., and again from 1:30 p.m. until 5 p.m. until work is done.
