Road Closures

The following locations are closed until further notice.  Detour routes are in place:

  • 252A Crescent from 254 Street to 72 Avenue:
    The road closure remains in place due to road stability concerns and to ensure public safety. Staff are proceeding with recommended measures for stabilization of the slopes around the culvert. Based on the deterioration observed in the culvert, the road will not open to traffic, and there is no timeframe available as to when it will reopen. 

Community Impacts

  • West Langley Park Site (9402 – 208 Street)

    The driveway entrance remains closed to ensure public safety.  Alternate vehicle access for the onsite caretaker and events at the West Langley Hall remains open.  This access is temporary and not meant for general park use.  Staff continue to work on the design of a replacement culvert and are preparing applications for the necessary approvals from senior levels of government to allow for the replacement works within the riparian zone of West Munday Creek.  There is no timeframe available as to when the driveway will reopen.

  • 34A Avenue 27000 Block Site
    The bypass pump remains in place to prevent flooding during rainfall events and staff have engaged a civil engineering consultant to provide a permanent solution.
  • Glover Road south of Rawlison Crescent
    The road remains open and staff, in consultation with the geotechnical engineer, are inspecting the site twice daily for movement.  The geotechnical engineer is currently designing a permanent solution which is anticipated to require specialized equipment and contracted services.
  • Matheson Creek culvert 6500 Block of 200 Street
    The culvert is in very poor condition and is being monitored regularly by staff.  It is scheduled for replacement in August 2020.
