Detour in place for westbound travellers at McBride and Third Avenue West

Motorists travelling along Third Avenue west or turning from McBride
are facing a detour today for the busy corridor road

See update at bottom of story

Only recently returned to offer a left turn, travel westbound on Third Avenue West is currently being re-routed around the corner at McBride owing to a road closure. 

The westbound lane for traffic has. been closed for much of the day in the block where Northern Savings Credit Union is located. 

The Closure is also impacting on those travellers coming from the Cow Bay Area.

So far the City of Prince Rupert  has not advised as to the nature of the road closure, or for how long the traffic restrictions will be in place.

The left turn option from McBride had been eliminated for much of the summer during the waterline and road reconstruction work which wrapped up earlier this month.

Update: Monday afternoon the City provide an update on the work taking place in the area, noting that it was related to work on a fire hydrant.
