The City of Trail is advising that CP Rail will be undertaking maintenance work to the rail crossing at Stoney Creek Road on Wednesday, Sept. 15.
This necessitates the closure of Stoney Creek Road in the vicinity of the rail crossing to all vehicular traffic from 8:15 a.m. to 3:30 pm. that day.
Stoney Creek Road serves as the only access to the Tadanac neighbourhood.
For those needing to access the neighbourhood during this time period, a pedestrian crossing will be made available through CP Rail’s work site.
Access for any emergency vehicles, including the RCMP, fire services, ambulance, will be provided through the Teck Trail plant should need arise.
“The city regrets the significant inconvenience this road closure will cause,” the municipality stated in a news brief.
“But understands that the rehabilitation of the rail crossing is necessary to bring it into compliance with Transport Canada and CP Rail standards and regulations.”
