Windley Contracting (2010) Ltd. will be conducting work on Highway 97 between Winfield and Oyama, on Thursday, November 22, between the hours of 9am and 3pm.
As this work will include rock blasting and its removal from the highway, motorists should expect traffic delays during these times.
This work will also include a 30 min. highway closure from Oceola intersection to Ponderosa Road between 1:00pm to 1:30pm Thursday, as blasting activities must be completed during daylight hours for the safety of the public and workers.
Motorists may want to use alternate routes during these periods. A detour route will be available via Oyama Road on the east side of Wood Lake. Windley Contracting (2010) Ltd. has developed a Traffic Management Plan to minimize traffic impacts especially to emergency services, transit, local property owners and commuters.
General questions regarding this project should be directed to Kyle Webb, Civil Divisions Manager for Windley Contracting (2010) Ltd. at 250-758-3411.
