Sorry for Any Inconvenience.
Please note that the OVERFLOW BRIDGE on Parkway Road (west of the Sugarloaf Bridge) will be closed for repairs Tuesday, Jan. 30th through Wednesday, Jan. 31st. Please use the detour route during this time.
We apologize in advance for any inconvenience and thank everyone for their cooperation.
Your Mayor and Council are busy making plans for a very local celebration to recognize the hardship endured and cooperation from all the residents during the Sugarloaf Bridge Replacement.
The first vehicle will go across the bridge at 4:00 pm on Saturday, September 23rd. We have a vision of all the people on the bridge in the pedestrian walkway while a parade of emergency vehicles (that are too heavy to have used the bridge since the fall of 2013) go across the deck. An aerial photo will be taken to mark the occasion. We’ll follow up with cupcakes for all just off the west end of the bridge.
So. . . if you want to be there, you should know. . . walking access will be available from both sides starting at 3:30 pm. First vehicle traffic will be from west to east at 4:00 pm. The vehicles will circle around and drive back across east to west for the completed parade and celebration.
Traffic on Maquinna Ave. may be delayed mid morning on Wednesday June 28th while a large crane is transported to the East side of the Sugarloaf Bridge.

The pedestrian walkway will stay OPEN.
This closure is due to geotechnical drilling for the Sugarloaf Bridge Replacement Project.
Sorry for Any Inconvenience.
The Zeballos FSR is now OPEN to all traffic. There is a single lane open and equipment working, but it’s passable. Please note that there is still water and some debris on the road, but it should be OK for low-clearance vehicles during daylight hours while crews are still there to help if needed.
The Zeballos FSR is CLOSED due to a landslide at the 14 km mark. Engineers are on site assessing soil stability.
Check back here for updates or see the Campbell River Natural Resource District alerts page.
