Terrace lifts state of emergency, Ferry Island to reopen Wednesday

Frank Street reopened as emergency repairs complete

Emergency repairs to Frank Street are complete and the road reopened. A city-wide state of local emergency (SOLE) is set to expire tonight at midnight.

The SOLE was declared to obtain funds through Emergency Management B.C for repairs to a section of Frank Street at risk of erosion due to flooding. Contractor McElhanney designed and managed the installation of rip rap erosion protection.

The erosion alongside Frank Street has been an annual problem during the spring melt and the city said repairs were needed before the risk of road washout became imminent.

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 is reopened to any existing reservations from June 10 and new reservations can now be booked.

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.

The city said it will release another update should any significant changes occur to the forecast.
