Pathway Updates Around McKenzie Lake and Douglasdale

Pathway Updates Around McKenzie Lake and Douglasdale

My office has received several inquiries about the pathways that have been affected by the June 2013 Flood:

McKenzie Bridge – The Province has tendered and awarded the east abutment of the bridge which is part of the McKenzie Meadows Shore Project.  They hope to have the bridge open for the May long weekend, but there may be some outstanding work to strengthen the structure of bridge.  I will update this blog as more information becomes available.

Douglasdale—The most notable closure in this area is the Sue Higgins Bridge. Engineering, design, tender and contract award are complete.  Work was scheduled to begin as soon as the frost comes out of the ground.  Transport Canada has requested the bridge be re-registered  but expect that it will not delay its opening.  The bridge is scheduled to re-open sometime in early July.

Currently the north end of the Sue Higgins Park is open. Some closures remain in effect.  Please exercise caution in the areas that have re-open. Check back for updates.
