Robinson Creek Landslide - Update

Monday, May 15, 2017

8:00 PM

The Evacuation Order issued on Saturday, May 6, 2017 for thirteen properties in the 5900 block of Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road has been partially rescinded.  Eleven properties have been removed from the Evacuation Order area. The Evacuation Order will remain in place for two properties, located at 5921 and 5932 Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road. 

The Evacuation Alert issued on Thursday, May 11, 2017 for seven properties within the area has also been rescinded.

A geotechnical assessment of the landslide area was conducted on Monday, May 15, 2017. The assessment concluded that the debris flow hazard has now diminished and the Evacuation Order for eleven properties and the Evacuation Alert for seven properties can be removed.  Due to the proximity of the properties (5921 and 5932 Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road) to the existing creek channel and other contributing factors, the Evacuation Order will remain in place.

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure has advised that at 6:00 PM on Monday, May 15, 2017, Sunnybrae Canoe Point Road opened to two way traffic.  The road will remain open 24 hours per day with no planned closures at this time.  Motorists are advised that there is no stopping permitted within the slide area and to obey all traffic control signage. 

If you require RCMP, Ambulance or Fire please contact 9-1-1.  For all other inquiries please contact the Emergency Operations Centre.
