Officials at the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI) advise that they continue to make progress on the road cleanup and repair at the 5900 block of Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road in Tappen, BC.
At this time access through the site will only be permitted to MoTI construction vehicles. Public access through the site will not be permitted until the route is deemed to be safe by MoTI. Limited openings to the public are expected to occur early next week, weather and conditions permitting. In the event of an emergency beyond the slide area, MoTI will work with emergency services to provide access.
The Evacuation Order for thirteen properties from 5866 to 5948 Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road remains in effect. The Evacuation Alert for the seven properties adjacent to the evacuation order area to the east from 5951 to 5990 Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road remains in effect as well. Residents living beyond the landslide area will not be able to travel through the Evacuation Zone at this time.
A geotechnical assessment of the slide area is scheduled for Monday, May 15, 2017. The Columbia Shuswap Regional District will provide an information update on the results of the asssessment when it is made available.
