West River Road

Chunk of West River Road closed indefinitely as mudslide fix studied


On June 28 heavy rain caused a mudslide next to Fairview Riverside Hospital so powerful the cascading debris blasted across West River Road with enough force to send the walking path’s railing tumbling toward the river below.

Since then the debris has been cleared off of the road and a protective tarp placed over the exposed soil to help stabilize the slope, but Park Board engineers say until a permanent solution is finalized a mile-long section of West River Road will remain closed to cars, bikes and pedestrians.
