UPDATE: Riverview Drive Road Closure and Detour

Notice to residents of Riverview Drive Road Closure and Detour
Re: Riverview Drive Guide Rail Replacement and Slope Rehabilitation

UPDATE: The road closure will be pushed to early next week due to rain forecast as well as some tasks hat need to be completed first. A new date will be posted when available.

This letter is to notify residents that due to the construction work for this project, Riverview Drive will be closed to vehicle access near Civic #37 on Wednesday, October 23, 2019 (weather permitting).

Local traffic requiring access to Riverview Drive past Civic #37 will be required to detour via South Cains River Road, through a private access road on Civic #81 to access Riverview Road.

The work being carried out is necessary to mitigate the currently failing section of Riverview Drive, and replace existing stormwater infrastructure which is in poor condition.

The Village regrets any inconvenience this may cause and appreciates your patience and cooperation while this work is being completed.

    Is the detour road coming through Stewart’s property?
