Town of Oliver to improve raised crosswalk at Tuc-el-Nuit Elementary School

Traffic will be affected for nearly two weeks

Construction will soon be underway in Oliver to replace the raised crosswalk on Park Drive at Tuc-el-Nuit Elementary School.

The work is scheduled to begin on July 20, 2020.

Park Drive is scheduled to be closed during construction with detours in effect. Traffic will be affected for nearly two weeks, or at least until July 31, 2020, according to a statement from the Town of Oliver.

Park Drive between Eastside Drive and Tuc-el-Nuit Drive will be open to local residential traffic only.

Grizzly Excavating will soon be notifying nearby residents.

The changes are to improve the ramps to the appropriate specifications of the raised crosswalk.

Motorists are asked by the Town of Oliver to be mindful of crews working on roadways and to obey all traffic signage.
