Elk View Toad Tunnel Construction update

Unfortunately, construction challenges delayed the installation of the amphibian crossing structure on Elk View Road the week of May 19th.  Construction has been rescheduled for June 1 – June 5, 2015. A full road closure will be in effect starting at 7am on Monday June 1st.  Elk View road south of Ryder Lake road will be completely closed during construction (just south of the mailbox pullout).  A map of the suggested detour routes is shown below:

Construction update for Elk View road

We ran into a few construction challenges today while excavating for the toad tunnel installation.  Therefore, Elk View is open (temporarily) until we can proceed further with this project.  Please look for construction and detour signage as we will move forward with this project as soon as possible.

Installation of Amphibian Crossing Structure 2015

We have excellent news!  We are finally installing an amphibian crossing structure in Ryder Lake between May 19th and May 22nd, 2015.  Lafarge Canada is volunteering their services to complete the installation.

The crossing structure installation requires a road closure due to heavy machinery therefore Elk View road will be closed south of its intersection with Ryder Lake road (see map).  Traffic will be detoured along Ryder Lake and Huston roads.  Updates on road closures will be available here.  If you have any questions please contact the Fraser Valley Conservancy at projects@fraservalleyconservancy.ca.
