A nearby detour through the Bells Lake gravel pit road was completed over the weekend for motorists, just a few days after spring freshet destroyed a section of Horsefly Road.
The detour is single vehicle alternating traffic and will only add a few minutes to the commute of motorists while contractors work over the next month to fix the Horsefly Road, at Bells Lake Road, where a washout began at a culvert Thursday, April 22, 2021.
Traffic control will be on site 24 hours a day, seven days a week with 50 per cent weight restriction.
School buses are able to take the detour.
April 26, 2021 – Horsefly buses are running as normal.
