Agassiz highway to close for up to 24 hours

Crews installing large box culvert at Miami Creek

Highway 9 between McCallum Road and the Highway 7/Else Road junction will be closed for up to 24 hours starting Tuesday night while crews install a large box culvert at Miami Creek.

According to a District of Kent public notice, the work will start Tuesday at 7 p.m. and requires “a deep excavation and mobile crane as well as several excavators and gravel trucks.”

Pedestrians and cyclists will be able to pass next to the work site but traffic will be re-directed to detour via Cameron Road and McCallum Road.

The notice says crews will try to have the highway reopened to single lane traffic prior to rush hour on Sept. 12.
