FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Localized movement on the Old Fort Road was detected last night, Thursday, and as a result of the movement, the Ministry of Transportation has made the decision to close the road as a precaution.

Since the landslide in 2018, the Ministry says an automated monitoring system has been onsite at Old Fort to provide continuous updates on movement in the area, and an operating protocol is in place to respond appropriately.

According to the Ministry, even though movement was detected along the road, there was no movement detected near residents.
