Ferry Island reopening scheduled for Wednesday, June 15

The Emergency repairs to Frank Street are complete and the road reopened following the City of Terrace’s state of local emergency (SOLE) declaration for the purpose of facilitating emergency mitigation repairs to this section of roadway, which was at risk of erosion due to flooding. Contractor McElhanney designed and managed the completion of the works, which consisted of installing rip rap erosion protection.

Set to expire tonight at midnight, the SOLE was issued city-wide, but specifically in place for the Frank Street repairs. The erosion alongside this road was an annual problem during the spring freshet that continued to escalate, and immediate repairs were required before the risk of road washout became imminent. The City received approval and emergency funding through Emergency Management BC to complete this work.

As the flood risk remains low for the City of Terrace, Ferry Island is also set to fully reopen to the public for trail and day use on Wednesday, June 15. Camping reopened to any existing reservations on June 10 and new reservations can now be booked. All visitors are asked to obey all signage and any flagging encountered on the trails, as there are some small sections of trail under repair. Fisherman’s Memorial Park remains closed until further notice.

Our next update will be released should any significant changes occur to the forecast; residents can continue monitoring our communications channels, including our website at https://www.terrace.ca/flooding2022 and the City’s Facebook and Twitter accounts.
