Haisla Blvd. has been closed going east towards downtown at Kuldo Blvd. as of Friday (Nov. 6) morning.
District workers were putting up ‘Road Closed’ signs around 8:30 a.m. Friday and workers told the Kitimat Northern Sentinel that it was for a pole that’s being put up, but that they can’t say any more at this time.
The District of Kitimat said that the crews will be putting up a directional sign pole near the intersection. The eastbound lane will be closed between Kuldo and Lahakas Blvds. until mid-afternoon Friday.
Traffic will be directed to alternate routes, going along Kuldo Blvd. to Quatsino Blvd. for those travelling to the lower Kitimat neighbourhoods or City Center, and along Kuldo Blvd. to Nalabila Blvd. for those travelling to the upper neighbourhoods or out of Kitimat.
The stoplights at the Haisla and Kuldo Blvds. intersection is out of order for the time being, as well, and drivers are reminded to treat the intersection as a four-way stop.
