Parts of Sturgeon Point Road were inaccessible in Vanderhoof due to flooding.
Yellowhead Roads and Bridge in Vanderhoof posted a photo on Facebook around 8:15 am on April 20, of the washout near Maunders Road in Vanderhoof.
A temporary bridge has been put in place until the “high water goes down and then we will repair the road,” Jordy McNolty, general manager of YRB said.
A single lane was opened for alternating traffic around 4 p.m. on April 20.
The cause of flooding is the late spring and high temperature, the general manager said, adding that the run-off is “overwhelming from a later spring.”
There will be 24-hour traffic control on that road until it is re-opened, he said.
