Overnight closures required for Isabella Point Road repairs 

Salt Spring Islanders who live in part of the Isabella Point Road neighbourhood will need to prepare for two periods of overnight closures in December. 

Crews will be working nights starting Dec. 5, according to the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure (MoTI), and will close the road overnight from Monday, Dec. 5 to Friday, Dec. 9, and possibly Monday, Dec. 12 to Friday, Dec. 16 between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. Otherwise the road will remain open to single-lane alternating traffic. MoTI stressed emergency vehicles would have full access. 

Work taking place is part of an ongoing project to stabilize and strengthen the roadway after shoulder damage resulting from the atmospheric river storm this time last year. 

The overnight work is subject to favourable weather conditions, and should take five nights to complete, according to MoTI. In the event of heavy rain, the road will remain open to single-lane alternating traffic throughout.  

Electronic message signs located south of the intersection of Isabella Point Road and Musgrave Road will update drivers on closures. For the latest information about road conditions, follow @DriveBC on Twitter and visit the website.
