Repairs to Highway 2 near Dunvegan after May 2015 slide

Work started Monday to fix up Highway 2 near Dunvegan. The road on the hill north of the Dunvegan Bridge and south of Fairview was damaged by a slide last May.

The highway embankment will be stabilized with the construction of a pile wall along a stretch roughly a tenth of a kilometre. Construction should last until the end of July, and in the meantime, delays are expected.

The speed reductions put in place after the slide are also still in effect, meaning traffic in the area has a maximum of 30 kilometres an hour. Both north and southbound traffic is affected, but it is still going in both directions.

Work will be paused from mid-April to mid-May for the ground to thaw. The project will cost 1-point-3 million dollars.
