Highway 6 is is now open concluding over five weeks of construction due to the slide on Feb 18.
The site was challenging for the highways crews, as the soils were saturated due to recent rains causing the slide area to be actively moving until Feb 28. Crews responded to the destruction caused by the slide by reconstructing the road base, installing new drainage appliances and excavating hundreds of cubic meters of material.
The completed maintenance has restored the highway route but will remain as a gravel surface until a hard surface can be installed. Minor works will continue at the site in the next week with some further minor delays to allow for site cleanup, ditching and some additional rock generation.
The ministry kindly reminds motorists to slow down and obey all traffic signs at the site until the highway surface is repaved.
