Listuguj Mi’gmaq Government Drainage of Caplin Road & Storm Water Detention Pond

As a result of the current construction activities and the number of construction crews on site, Caplin Road will be closed to thru traffic until further notice. However, residents and motorists/pedestrians going to and from the Alaqsite’w Gitpu School will continue to have access throughout the remainder of the construction project.

It is expected this will be in place until the construction activities conclude in mid-December. Road closure is essential to allow construction crews to complete work efficiently while maintaining the highest possible level of safety.

Signage will notify residents and motorists of any traffic changes. We ask that you remain conscientious of the heavy equipment/construction staff and that you keep an eye on younger children and pets to avoid any accidents.

The road closure to thru traffic is anticipated to begin on November 19, 2020 and be completed by mid December 2020. Working hours will be from 7:00 am to 6:00 pm, Monday to Friday.

We recognize that the planned work will be an inconvenience, and your patience during these upgrades is greatly appreciated.
