Due to the watermain break and road washout that occurred on Saturday, November 7, 2020, the City of Trail deems it necessary to keep an 85-metre section of Green Avenue closed for the winter. The closed section of road is located between the Green Avenue / Farwell Street intersection and the Green Avenue / Glover Road intersection.
The sidewalk will remain open for pedestrians, and the attached map highlights the traffic detour routes. Road closure signs that also include the detour routes will be placed at the head of the “goat trail” on Palyga Drive and the intersections of Nelson Avenue / Birch Avenue and Farwell Street / Tamarac Avenue.
Although this is an inconvenience to local traffic, it is important to note the following:
- The aging underground infrastructure (the 6” watermain and the sanitary sewer line) will be upgraded in the spring. This infrastructure should remain easily accessible until then should there be any other issues during the winter.
- It is not cost effective to pave the section now as the infrastructure upgrade scheduled for the spring will require the section of road to be fully excavated.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this road closure.
Please direct any questions to the Public Works Department 250-364-0840 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
