Willow Cale Road Closed Starting Today
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.
