The City of Williams Lake will be undertaking maintenance works on Dog Creek Road as of 8 am Thursday morning. A contractor will be on site with an excavator, along with City crews and trucks.

Rob Warnock, Director of Municipal Services, said crews will be working to fix the hump in the road near Highway 20 at the start of Dog Creek Road.

“Our crews were there in the spring and fixed it then, but the hump has returned,” Warnock said. “We are repairing it again before winter due to safety concerns.”

Chief Administrative Officer Gary Muraca added, “The City continues to lobby senior levels of government to come up with a solution that meets our needs. That is still an ongoing process, but the City needs to ensure vehicular traffic safety while we undertake these measures. We cannot overlook residents’ immediate safety while we wait for a response.”

In August, the City contacted the Province to request funding for rehabilitation works due to slide activity on Dog Creek Road from Highway 20 to the municipal boundary. To date, the Province has not responded to the City’s request.

We appreciate the public’s continued patience as we work toward a solution for this ongoing issue.
