Old Island Highway lane closure Thursday

The Old Island Highway between Ryan and Headquarters will be reduced to single-lane northbound traffic only.

  • Nov. 2, 2016 8:00 a.m.

The Old Island Highway between Ryan and Headquarters will be reduced to single-lane northbound traffic only on Thursday, Nov. 3, starting at 8 a.m. Southbound traffic will be detoured via posted side streets.

City of Courtenay crews will be deploying the Aqua Dam flood control barrier due to heavy rains and high river levels, as well as additional precipitation in the forecast. Once Aqua Dam installation is complete, this section of the Old Island Highway will return to regular two-way traffic.

The Aqua Dam on Comox Road is already in place.

Due to heavy rains, the parking lot at the Lewis Centre is partially flooded and closed to the public, though the centre is still open for programs and drop-ins. Please park on higher ground, but not at neighboring businesses that are open.

For more information, call 250-338-5371.
