Highway 20 at Hodgson/Dog Creek Road

Highway 20 at Hodgson Creek Road

OpenHighway 20 and some local side roads are being affected by a historic landslide.

Update

New geotechnical and hydrotechnical investigations are underway in the vicinity of Highway 20 and the Dog Creek Subdivision, as the next stage of engineering gets underway.  Data is being collected as part of the engineering study examining options for addressing the impacts of the historic Hodgson Slide on Highway 20 and other area roads.

Road users may see large equipment and workers present as the technical teams carry out subsurface investigations.  Work will be carried out during daylight hours, Mondays through Saturdays. Please watch for lane closures, reduced speeds and the presence of traffic control personnel.

We thank you for your patience.
