Day 51 since the landslide & finally good news folks, the OVK DOT Crew is mobilizing equipment to the site of the landslide today & tomorrow to begin the clean up! There will be equipment on the road and trucks running from the site of the slide to the Thorne Bay Landfill as soon as work begins, please respect our crews and use caution. I do not have a date of when the road will be open, please continue to be patient and know we are working as quickly as allowed.
The Lake Ellen Road will continue to be utilized through the clean up until we can ensure public safety. Snow removal will continue, please folks also use caution on the bypass road. Pay attention to blind spots, going up hills and around corners, go slow, you cannot stop if you are going too fast! I appreciate your continued patients, please feel free to call me with any questions, contact information is listed below.
