Notice of Temporary Walkway Closures and Traffic Delays

The District of Sparwood would like to advise residents that the municipality will be temporarily closing Industrial Road #3 and Upper and Lower Matevic Roads. To facilitate improvements to these gravel roads and ensure public safety, the areas outlined in the map below in red will be closed to pedestrian traffic beginning September 3, 2019 and until such time as the construction work has been completed.

The contractor hired to complete this work, BA Blacktop (Cranbrook), will commence construction work on September 3, 2019 and will continue until approximately September 20, 2019.

Industrial Road #3 and Upper and Lower Matevic Roads will be periodically reduced to single lane alternating traffic for the duration of construction and passage through certain areas may not always be available, except for emergency vehicles. The areas closed to pedestrian traffic will be identified with closure markers at the trailheads.  The District recommends that pedestrians utilize the alternate route, as in green on the map during this period.

Please be prepared to expect minor delays.

For any questions, please contact BA Blacktop at 250-426-7205 (8 am – 5 pm.)
