High stream flows in Williams Creek have washed out a portion of the road and the conditions are unsafe, said Kelly Sinoski, Corporate Engagement Officer for the City.
Sinoski said there are unstable slopes in the area, heavy equipment are working there and the flooding could possible impact City infrastructure.
“City crews are assessing the situation,” she said.
The situation is currently impacting access to residents of Moore Mountain. Further information will be released as it becomes available.
More to come.
