There will be a full closure of the Pleasant Valley Exit between Highway 97A and Smith Drive starting May 15 to June 30, 2023, as approved by the Ministry of Transportation. The City of Armstrong will begin construction of the Meighan Creek Diversion project as part of ongoing flood mitigation works, and the City’s capital projects for 2023.
The Meighan Creek Bypass project objective is to construct a bypass to alleviate capacity issues through exiting culverts under highway 97A to Smith Drive and installation of new culvert sections to connect high flows to Deep Creek.
The bypass project is designed to the 1/200-year flows including increase capacity for climate change resiliency. The project is funded by the Province of BC through the Community Emergency Preparedness Fund and the City of Armstrong.
All emergency services have been notified and are aware of the closure. Landmark Solutions was awarded the contract and will begin construction on Monday May 15 and continue to June 30, 2023.
