Willow Cale Road Closed Starting Today

Wednesday, September 21, 2016 @ 6:00 AM

Prince George, B.C. – Construction work will close Willow Cale Road starting at 6:00 a.m. this morning.

The work will allow for a new steel girder bridge over Haggith Creek where a culvert beneath the road has deteriorated causing erosion of the road.

The closure means all traffic must take an alternate route via Highway 97 South. North of Haggith Creek, the route will be closed at the Penn Road and Willow Cale Road intersection.

Transport traffic must detour on Highway 97 South to Willow Cale Forest Service Road. Passenger traffic weighing less than 25 tonnes may detour on Highway 97 South to Damms Road.


Transport traffic is asked to detour via Willow Cale Forest Service Road to Highway 97, and Damms Road is also available for passenger vehicles under 25 tonnes. The crossing on Willow Cale Road is about 600 metres from the city’s southerly border.


This article has got to be wrong on the road closure unless PBEC is not taking its usual hundred or so loads of fiber a day.

If the road is closed at Penn Road and the Willow Cale and all traffic is to use the detour, then how does PBEC and the pavement company access their properties though the Haggith Creek crossing?

Probably more likely the road is closed to through traffic only at Penn Road, but still open to local traffic for businesses north of Haggith Creek.

Sure would make someone mad to go all the way around only to find out they can’t get through… Some people are that dumb.

Columbia has been closed for over ten years now. You just have to look at the map.
