⚠️Highway 4 at Kennedy Hill is re-opened with a single-lane bridge. Expect delays and drive with care.

  • Start Date: January 23, 12:56 pm
  • End Date: January 27, 5:00 pm

Highway 4 to Tofino and Ucluelet was temporarily closed to the public with limited openings for essential travel. The closure was caused by an unexpectedly large volume of rock falling on rain-saturated ground during a scheduled blast early on Thursday, Jan. 23, as part of the Highway 4 – Kennedy Hill Safety Improvement project.

This is a highly complex and much-needed construction project that will significantly improve driver safety once complete; unexpected issues occur and emergency and communication protocols have been activated to ensure driver safety, accurate incident information and reduced inconvenience.
