Flood Mitigation Plan: Temporary Trail Closures

Geotechnical investigative work on the City Dikes to inform a new Flood Mitigation Plan will occur Tuesday August 7th – Friday August 10th  in areas throughout the City.  This plan will assess the integrity of the dike systems throughout Fernie and make recommendations for areas of improvement.  Next week, there will be crews on the dikes performing drill work. Where drilling is taking place, there will be temporary restricted access to parts of the dike trails they are drilling on. These shut downs will be for a short duration and signage will be posted to notify users.  We ask that you adhere to signage and avoid areas where crews are working.
