A further temporary closure has been announced as work continues on the Springbank reservoir project.

On Wednesday, Aug.16, the first 300 metres of Springbank Road east of Hwy. 22 will be closed until about Sept. 15. During this time there will be no access to Hwy. 22 from Springbank Road.

The closure is necessary to facilitate the raising and realignment of Hwy. 22 that's required for the reservoir project.

A detour from Range Road 33 is estimated to be in operation from Aug. 16 to Sept. 5. The detour will be relocated to RR 40 once improvements are completed there.

The detour will be signed.
