Visitors to Goose Spit Park will face delays getting to and from the site for a few days this month.
The Comox Valley Regional District (CVRD) will be working to repair potholes on Hawkins Road in and around Goose Spit for a four-day period starting June 22 and ending June 25.
Trenching and paving work will take place between 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. in different locations throughout the park, starting from Hawkins Road hill through to the entrance of HMCS Quadra.
Park visitors driving in will face single-lane closures while flaggers direct traffic through most repair areas. Sections of road near the middle of the park will need to be closed in both directions at varying times to ensure that all equipment and excavated material in this zone remains on paved areas. These measures are to protect sensitive environmental habitat, including the endangered yellow sand verbena plants.
During periods when the road is closed in both directions, traffic will be detoured through the parking area in the middle of the park. While traffic is being directed through, this area will be closed to parking and pedestrian use to ensure public safety.
The stairs at Goose Spit remain open for uphill use only to allow for physical distancing. Stair climbers can return to Goose Spit Park via Yates Road and Hawkins Greenway which is an 820-metre round trip.
