The intersection at 16th Street along Saskatchewan Crescent is finally reopen after a slope failure caused a section of roadway to sink down the riverbank.
The westbound lane sunk 3 feet in July this year, and crews have spent the last 4 months fixing it. Project Lead Reid Corbett says slope repairs aren't easy, but he feels they have repaired this site to the point where there should be no further trouble. Corbett says there will be a short closure of the route in the Spring in order to lay the final layer of pavement. Otherwise, the retaining wall cap, sidewalk, and hand railing will be completed in Spring 2017.
