BRIDGE OPENING SEPT. 23rd!

BRIDGE OPENING

Saturday, September 23rd

4:00 pm

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.

Expect Delays on the Zeballos FSR

Road Advisory from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations:

Please be advised that additional road maintenance activities will be taking place along various sections of the Zeballos Forest Service Road to address recent storm damage. The road maintenance work will be taking place over the next 2-3 weeks.

Expect delays up to 1 hour for light traffic vehicles and up to 2 hours for heavy traffic vehicles.

Please plan your travel accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience.

UPDATE – Zeballos Road is OPEN

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.
